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, 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), BMPO has the responsibility to develop an annual Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for the urbanized area.

The BMPO’s TIP is a short range five-year program of highway and transit projects 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.

January Amendment to 2017 Transportation Improvement Program

The annual listing identifies all obligations for specific tasks such as construction, right-of-way acquisition and preliminary engineering for roadway improvement projects that occurred during the first year of the previous TIP.  Funds are also obligated for planning and public transportation projects and activities.

Obligation means the phase of a roadway improvement project or other activity is ready and eligible to receive federal funds for the specific programmed task.  It does not indicate the task has been completed.
