The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a list of financially constrained transportation projects and services anticipated to occur in the near-term future. Transportation projects  on this list are derived from the Long Range Transportation Plan, a 20 year plan developed in coordination with  member governments, SCDOT, and LRTA.  Project Ranking based on fiscal constraint determines which projects identified within the LRTP will be included within the seven year TIP period. The TIP is also required to include all regionally significant projects receiving Federal funds, or for which Federal approval is required. The TIP  may be amended periodically throughout the year. Procedures for amending and modifying the LATS TIP are detailed in the LATS 2021-2027 TIP document
