2021-2024 Centre County Transportation Improvement Program

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a list of priority road, bridge and public transportation projects to be funded by federal and state capital dollars over the next four federal fiscal years (October-September). The TIP is prepared cooperatively by PennDOT, the CCMPO, the Centre Area Transportation Authority (CATA), and the Centre County Office of Transportation Services (CCOT). The TIP makes up the first four years of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Twelve Year Program (TYP), and is updated by PennDOT and the CCMPO every two years.

The Air Quality Conformity Determination Report is prepared to ensure that the projects on the TIP do not result in vehicle emissions that exceed the emissions budgets established for Centre County, relative to the 1997 8-hour ozone national Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS).

PennDOT, CATA, the CCOT and other project sponsors are responsible for implementing the projects and programs funded on the TIP. Projects on the TIP usually proceed in phases (for roads and bridges, the phases include preliminary engineering, final design, relocation of utilities, right-of-way acquisition, and construction). Funding for each project phase is listed on the TIP.
