FAMPO is responsible for conducting the federally required metropolitan planning process in the greater Fredericksburg Region. Federal regulations require an MPO to develop a TIP which contains a listing of projects in their region expected to receive Federal funding over a four-year period. Federal regulations require the inclusion of any project in the Fredericksburg Region on which federal funds will be expended to be included in the TIP. The TIP includes projects on the Interstate, Primary, Urban and Secondary Highway Systems, as well as, safety projects, transportation enhancement, aviation projects, rail projects bicycle and pedestrian projects and public transit projects. Any project included in the TIP must be consistent with, or be selected from an approved Long Range Transportation Plan. Though the TIP is adopted only once every four years, it can be amended to account for changes in funding or project needs.
