The Bonneville Metropolitan Planning Organization (BMPO) is an agency designated by the Governor of Idaho to conduct a continuing, comprehensive, and cooperative transportation planning process in the urbanized area under the direction of elected officials from the Cities of Ammon, Idaho Falls, Iona and Ucon and the urbanized portions of Bonneville County, and Targhee Regional Public Transportation Authority (TRPTA), in conjunction with the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD). Under the requirements of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) the BMPO has the responsibility to develop a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for the area.
The BMPO’s TIP is a short range five-year program of highway and transit project for the Bonneville Metropolitan Area. It is a compilation of projects from various Federal, State and local funding programs. The TIP is fiscally constrained which means the funding source for a project must be identified and anticipated to be available for completion of the project. The TIP is updated annually.
