New to the TIP

Welcome to the Hampton Roads Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) website.  We're happy you're here and hope you spend some time discovering what the TIP has to offer and why it matters to you as a citizen of this region.  Far from being a static document that sits on the shelf and collects dust, the TIP is dynamic, changing, and at the end of the day represents a Hampton Roads in motion. The TIP is not a collection of proposed projects and initiatives – it is a program of projects that are consistent with the transportation policies and strategies of our region.  The difference between the TIP and a plan is ACTION.

The TIP is literally and figuratively where the rubber meets the road.  If in the TIP, it means that some of our most desperately needed road, transit, and bicycle/pedestrian projects are no longer just a concept.  They are being planned, designed, and/or built throughout our region.

At some point, one or more of the projects featured in the TIP will likely affect the way you and your neighbors move around. We believe this information should be easily accessible, up-to-date, and at your fingertips. For this reason we have developed an Interactive Project Map and a Project Search Tool. The Interactive Project Map allows you to find project information by zooming into an area and clicking on a project on the map. The Project Search Tool helps you find the project you’re looking for by entering criteria such as the street name or project description. An Advanced Search option allows you to filter your project search by jurisdiction, project type, etc. We have even provided a Sample Project Summary Sheet to help you understand the TIP information once you find the project in which you are interested. However you choose to use this information, it is our sincere hope that we've produced a high-quality resource that's of value to you as well as the region.

So, browse around and stay awhile.  We always welcome your feedback and ask that if you have any suggestions on how we might make this tool better in the future to please contact Kendall Miller, our Public Involvement and Title VI Administrator, at kmiller@hrtpo.org or 757.420.8300.

Again, thanks for stopping by and we hope to see you at an upcoming HRTPO meeting or other event!  For a closer connection to the HRTPO, consider signing up to receive our eNewsletter or following us on Facebook and Twitter.  You can also learn what other opportunities are available to you for engaging with the HRTPO by reviewing the HRTPO Public Participation Plan.
