Draft FY2025 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for Pennsylvania (FY25-FY28)

DVRPC’s Draft TIP for Pennsylvania represents the region's federally funded transportation improvement priorities and is required by federal law in order for the region to receive and spend federal transportation funds. It has been developed in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), Southeastern Transportation Authority (SEPTA), Pottstown Area Rapid Transit (PART) and DVRPC's member counties and cities. After consideration of public comments, the Draft TIP with any recommended changes will be presented to the DVRPC Board for adoption at the regularly scheduled Board meeting on July 25, 2024.
