Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) Background
Washington State law requires the annual adoption of a 6-year transportation improvement program (6-yr TIP) after a public hearing. The purpose of the law is to always have every county produce and adopt a 6-year capital plan for a coordinated multi-modal transportation program. For more information view the RCW 36.81.121(1)) page.
The TIP is a comprehensive list of county transportation projects that Jefferson County Public Works anticipates undertaking in a consecutive six-year period. The list includes secured and anticipated funding sources for each project. The adopted 6-yr TIP is used for developing the annual construction program budget each year. Public Works provides information on federally-funded projects to the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) for the purpose of developing the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).
Projects are selected by a variety of methods, including evaluation of needs and potential solutions through analysis of road segments, accident data, active transportation, bridge conditions, pavement conditions, aging culverts, fish passage, and financial constraints / opportunities.
