The Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program, or MTIP, documents how all federal transportation money is spent in the Portland metropolitan region. It also documents state- and locally-funded projects that may significantly affect the region’s air quality.
As the federally-recognized metropolitan planning organization, Metro updates the MTIP every three years, collecting information from the Oregon Department of Transportation and the region's cities, counties and transit agencies. This update will list funded transportation projects scheduled in the region between 2018 and 2021.
The MTIP is incorporated without change into the State Transportation Improvement Program, or STIP, Oregon's statewide four-year transportation capital improvement program. Like the MTIP, Oregon's STIP covers a four-year construction period, and is updated every two to three years.
