TIP Report 2016
Click here to see a spreadsheet detailing transportation improvement projects (roadway projects that were awarded federal funding in Lucas and Wood counties in fiscal year 2016 - July 1, 2015 - June 30, 2016) Transit data is pending and will be available here shortly.
The numbers are less than in fiscal year 2015 because last year several very large projects were funded by bonds generated from the Ohio Turnpike. The I-75 project in north Toledo, currently under construction, was $131 million alone. Another portion of I-75 in north Toledo was $62 million. The other extremely large project that sold in FY2015 was the I-475 and Central Interchange which cost $39 million.
In fiscal year 2016 federal money for transportation projects in Lucas and Wood counties was approximately $81 million. Of that, TMACOG is charged with the selection and funding of just over $7 million. These funds are administered through TMACOG’s Transportation Improvement Program (the TIP). ODOT, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) manage the balance of approximately $74 million for other projects. This list is federally funded projects only and does not include road projects funded separately by cities and villages.
Many entities in our region – including local political jurisdictions, engineering and construction firms, ODOT, FHWA, and TMACOG – work cooperatively and in coordination to efficiently manage and successfully complete these transportation projects.
