TIP Amendment News Release


FDOT provides the Lake~Sumter Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) with a database annually in April for developing the MPO’s Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The database is derived from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Tentative Work Program to be adopted on or before July 1.  Year one of the TIP and the work program should always match. However, when the new TIP and Work Program are adopted in July, there are often projects that were supposed to get authorized and encumbered before June 30, for various reasons, but did not. These projects will automatically roll forward in the Work Program but will not roll forward in the TIP. Hence, the TIP must be amended to include these projects and match the Work Program. This is accomplished by what is known as a Roll Forward TIP Amendment. The amendment occurs annually in August.

The Lake~Sumter MPO received the proposed Roll Forward TIP Amendment request from FDOT on July 18, 2019. This is the first amendment to the MPO’s newly adopted FY 2021-2025 TIP. The MPO Board is required to decide on its approval.
