  12. 12. METROPOLITAN PLANNING AREA TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM  FY 2014 – 2017      Purpose    Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st  Century (MAP‐21), the current transportation legislation,  was signed into law on July 6, 2012.  This latest legislation maintains requirement for a fiscally  constrained program of projects based on the incorporation of national goals. As summarized in  the online FHWA MAP‐21 Performance Management Fact Sheet 1 , “a key feature of MAP‐21 is  the  establishment  of  a  performance‐  and  outcome‐based  program”.    The  “objective  of  the  program  is  to  invest  resources  in  projects  that  collectively  will  make  progress  toward  the  achievement of the national goals” 2 .      As  a  condition  to  receiving  federal  project  funds,  the  Transportation  Improvement  Program  (TIP) must list all highway and public transit transportation projects proposed for funding under  Title 23 (highways) and Title 49 (transit) of the US Code.  The TIP must include any Federal  Lands projects.  Currently there are no such projects in the TIP but if any Federal Lands projects  are amended into the TIP, they will be developed in accordance to 23 USC 204. The TIP also  must contain all federal, state and locally funded regionally significant transportation projects  regardless of funding source.  Regional significance for each project in shown in the list included  in the accompanying the Air Quality Conformity document.  The TIP includes state and local  roadway, bridge, bicycle, pedestrian, safety and public transportation (transit) projects.  Project  related  activities,  both  capital  and  non‐capital  in  nature,  such  as  planning  studies,  PE  (Preliminary Engineering, NEPA and design), ROW (Right‐of‐Way) and CONST (Construction) are  eligible for on and off‐roadway systems and capital and operating expenses for public transit.     The 2014‐2017 TIP follows the eight federal planning factors laid out in the latest transportation  authorization bill, MAP‐21 described above. This bill states that projects and strategies should:     1) support the economic vitality of the metropolitan area, especially by enabling global  competitiveness, productivity, and efficiency;  2)  increase  the  safety  of  the  transportation  system  for  motorized  and  nonmotorized  users;  3) increase the security of the transportation system for motorized and nonmotorized  users;  4) increase the accessibility and mobility of people and for freight;  5) protect and enhance the environment, promote energy conservation, improve the  quality  of  life,  and  promote  consistency  between  transportation  improvements  and  State and local planned growth and economic development patterns;  6) enhance the integration and connectivity of the transportation system, across and  between modes, for people and freight;  7) promote efficient system management and operation  1 Performance Management Fact Sheet: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/map21/pm.cfm. 2 Statutory citation for alignment of TIP with national goals: §1203; 23 USC 150(c). 12
  13. 13. 8) emphasize the preservation of the existing transportation system.    The TIP covers a four‐year period and is based on funds which are reasonably expected to be  available for project implementation. The document provides a reasonable opportunity for all  citizens and interested parties to review and comment concerning the development of the TIP  and the intent to fund specific projects.    Development Process     The Chattanooga‐Hamilton County/North Georgia Transportation Planning Organization (TPO),  a  federally  designated  Metropolitan  Planning  Organization  (MPO),  is  responsible  for  the  development  of  both  the  Tennessee  and  Georgia  portions  of  the  TIP  which  are  then  incorporated into the State Transportation Improvement Program(s) (STIP). See figure 1 below  for a map of the TPO planning area.  The TIP is developed by the TPO through a comprehensive,  continuing  and  cooperative  effort  with  the  Federal  Highway  Administration  (FHWA),  Federal  Transit  Administration  (FTA),  Tennessee  Department  of  Transportation  (TDOT),  Georgia  Department of Transportation (GDOT), the Northwest Georgia Regional Commission (NWGRC),  local  transit  operators,  the  public  and  other  interested  parties  to  implement  projects,  strategies, and services that address the current Federally legislated planning factors3 .  A new  TIP is developed at least every four years and updates are made to the TIP/STIP annually and as  necessary  through  Amendments  and  Adjustments/Modifications  further  outlined  in  the  Amendment Process section of this document.                               3 These planning factors may be found on the Federal Highway Administration’s website at http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/transprog/map21/FACT%20SHEETS/Program%20Restructuring/MAP21 _Metro_Planning_Fact_Sheet_draft.pdf or a hardcopy can be obtained upon request from the Regional Planning Agency located at 1250 Market Street, Suite 2000-DRC, Chattanooga, Tennessee 37402. 13
  14. 14.  Figure 1: TPO Planning Area    The TIP is based on transportation needs identified through the TPO transportation planning  process including, but not limited to, the adopted long‐range, regional Transportation Plan, TPO  adopted plans/studies such as the ITS Regional Architecture, Regional Freight Profile, and the  Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan.  The TIP must incorporate local as well as state planned  14
  15. 15. projects within their boundaries that may utilize federal funds as well as including 100% locally  funded projects determined to be regionally significant through the Interagency‐Consultation  Committee  on  Air  Quality  which  is  further  discussed  in  the  accompanying  Air  Quality  Conformity document.  The metropolitan TIPs are included in the STIP by reference without  modification once approved by the TPO and Governor, or his designee, and after needed air  conformity findings are made.  The expected date for this approval is on or before November  30, 2013.  Beforehand, federal regulations require that the TIP be made reasonably available for  public review and comment.    Public Involvement    In accordance with the TPO’s approved Participation Plan (PP), the public is given opportunities  to review and comment on the proposed program of projects throughout the TIP development  process. The TPO’s PP, outlines the methods and process for the TPO to gather public input for  all of its planning activities. The PP details outreach efforts to ensure opportunity for citizens  and stakeholders in the region to comment on various TPO activities including the development  of the Transportation Improvement Program. Federal regulations require MPO’s to provide for  a  reasonable  opportunity  for  public  comment  in  accordance  with  the  metropolitan  transportation  planning  process  requirements  and  a  public  meeting  in  Transportation  Management Areas (TMAs). The regulations also require the publication of the proposed TIP in  hardcopy format and/or other methods, to make it readily available for review and comment.   Consultation  and  coordination  with  area  stakeholders  happens  throughout  the  process  and  during  TPO  Technical  Committee  and  Board  meetings,  through  emails,  and  when  necessary  letters by postal mail when agreed upon by various stakeholders.    For  the  development  of  this  Chattanooga‐Hamilton  County/North  Georgia  TIP  the  following  public involvement methods were used:    1. MPO Board and Committee meetings which are open to the public and comments are  accepted as part of the hearing;  2. Publication  of  public  hearings  and  meetings  notices  in  the  regional  Times  Free  Press  newspaper  and  four  smaller  community  papers:  two  in  the  north  Georgia  area,  a  minority  paper  in  Chattanooga,  and  the  Spanish  version  of  the  Times  Free  Press  (advertisement is provided 14 days in advance of these meetings);  3. Publication of the draft and final documents are made available to public in hardcopy  format at the Regional Planning Agency and other governmental offices, upon request,  and via the TPO website at http://www.chcrpa.org/TPO.htm;  4. Comments  by  mail  are  sent  to:  the  Chattanooga‐Hamilton  County  Regional  Planning  Agency, 1250 Market Street, Chattanooga, Tennessee, 37402; by telephone at 423‐757‐ 5216; by fax at 423‐757‐5532; and by email at TPO@chattanooga.gov;  5. For TIP amendments, public involvement procedures consistent with the metropolitan  transportation planning process PP requirements are utilized (the PP is available at the  Regional Planning Agency office upon request, or via the TPO website);  6. For the development of the 2014‐2017 TIP, notice of the upcoming TIP development  process were provided at the last meetings of the TCC and Board for calendar year 2012.   The actual process began in January 2013, additionally when the TPO provided official  15
  16. 16. notice of the “call for projects”, and notices for sequent TPO TCC and Board meetings  held in March, April, and May 2013 to review draft lists as well as take final action of  approval on the fiscally constrained list.      During  the  month  of  March,  the  projects  submitted  during  the  Call  for  Projects  between  February  and  March  were  evaluated  and  scored  using  the  adopted  Community  to  Region  Performance Framework and performance measures detailed in Appendix B.  The scores were  provided to a selection committee for eligible TAP projects.   The same was done for projects  eligible for STP‐M funding including the TAP projects given there were fewer funds available for  programming under TAP. The two TIP Selection Subcommittees met the week of April 8, 2013.   Each  committee  reviewed  the  project  evaluation  scores  and  prioritized  a  list  for  recommendation  to  the  TPO  Technical  Coordinating  Committee  (TCC).    This  list  was  fiscally  constrained by the TPO staff based on the priorities of both committees and available funds  within each federal program.  The TCC reviewed the selection committees’ priorities and the  fiscal constraint in their recommendation for the TPO Executive Board.  A public meeting was  held in the Development Resource Center located at 1250 Market Street in Chattanooga on  May 9, 2013 to review and comment on the TCC’s recommendation and to review draft state  and transit authority project lists.  Comments from this meeting are included in Appendix C of  this document.  The Board took final action on the allocation for local projects on May 28, 2013.      Following Board action on the local project programming, the TPO staff finalizes development  of  the  draft  document  for  review  and  comment  by  TDOT  and  GDOT.    This  review  occurred  between June 11, 2013 and July 24, 2013.  At this same time the draft document is shared with  the TCC and Board membership.  Following the addressing of all State comments, staff consults  with resource agencies involved in environmental protection, natural resource management,  land  use  management,  historic  preservation,  etc.  as  well  as  stakeholders  with  interests  in  economic development, freight, and multimodal facilities during the development of the TIP  process.  This consultation occurred between August 14, 2013 and September 27, 2013.  Upon  satisfying  DOT  partner  comments,  the  TPO  presented  the  draft  document  to  the  TCC  for  approval for public comment and recommendation for approval from the Board.  The TPO holds  at least one public meeting in the evening hours for the draft TIP document which includes  notice of the public transit Program of Projects and when possible holds meetings in multiple  locations.  This meeting occurred on September 5, 2013 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., in the  Development  Resource  Center,  located  at  1250  Market  Street  in  Chattanooga.  Any  public  comments received at the meeting or submitted to the TPO through email, fax, or phone calls  can be found in Appendix C.  Any comments received from the public and/or resource agencies  are also included in Appendix C of this document.      The  TIP  will  be  made  available  to  every  county  and  municipality  throughout  the  TPO’s  Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA).  A list of attendees from each public hearing is on file at the  offices of the Regional Planning Agency.  Care has been taken to ensure that requirements of  MAP‐21 were met in the development of this TIP.    The TCC and Board proceedings are open to the public and comments may be received. Upon  adoption by the TPO Executive Board, the TIP is submitted to FHWA and FTA for approval.    16
  17. 17. Revenue Development     Federal funding for local, TPO selected projects in the TIP is provided through the metropolitan  Surface  Transportation  Program  (STP‐M)  and  Transportation  Alternative  Program  (TAP)  allocations.  This  amount  varies  from  year  to  year;  therefore  estimates  are  made  for  the  availability of funds for years FY 2014– FY 2017 in the TIP. In an effort to present reasonable  estimates of available funding for future year projects, the TPO has elected to use the amount  allocated under MAP‐21 to the TPO in FY 2013 as the base amount for future year projections.    The FY 2013 allocations for the TN and GA portions are shown in Table 1.  These revenues were  then grown by 3% for TN and 1% for GA from one year to the next for each year 2014, 2015,  2016, and 2017 as shown in Table 2.  After the required 20% local match, the total available  revenue was calculated and provided in Table 3.     TABLE 1.  Metropolitan Unobligated Balances and Base Allocations  TPO  Urbanized  Area  Unobligated  STP‐M  Balance  2012  MAP‐21  2013  TAP  Allocation 2013  +  TN/GA  DOT  reported  Unobligated  Balances 2012  2014  Projection  (2013*3%  TN   Growth Rt)  STP‐M  TAP  STP‐M  TAP  TN   $12,975,205  $393,075  $18,150,835 $392,289 $5,330,899  $404,058 GA   ‐  $127,051  ‐  $124,597 $1,488,123  $128,335   TABLE 2.  Metropolitan Revenue Projections  TPO  Urbanized  Area  2014  Available  Amount  (includes  unobligated    rollover  balance)  2015  Projection  (2014*Growth Rt)  2016  Projection  (2015*Growth Rt)  2017  Projection  (2016*Growth Rt)  STP‐M  STP‐M  TAP  STP‐M  TAP  STP‐M  TAP  TN   $23,481,734  $5,490,826 $416,179 $5,655,551 $428,665  $5,825,217 $441,525 GA   $4,337,504  $1,190,792 $129,618 $1,203,478 $130,914  $1,216,163 $132,224   TABLE 3.  Total 2014‐2017 Metropolitan Revenue  TPO  Urbanized  Area  Total Federal Funds  Required  Matching  Funds  Total Funds   STP‐M  TAP  STP‐M  TAP  STP‐M  TAP  TN   $40,453,328  $2,082,716 $10,113,332 $520,679 $50,566,659  $2,603,394 GA   $7,947,937  $645,688  $1,986,984  $161,422 9,934,921  $807,110    17

  22. 22. • States  of  Georgia  and  Tennessee  Gasoline  and  Motor  Fuels  Tax –  Funding  for  a  wide  variety  of  transportation  projects  across  the  entire  state,  including  major  construction  projects and maintenance type activities such as resurfacing and signalization upgrades.  Local Funding  Most  of  the  TPO’s  municipal  and  county  governments  use  their  General  Fund  comprised  of  local taxes to conduct routine operations and maintenance of their transportation systems in  addition  to  state  aid  from  gasoline/fuel  taxes.    However,  these  jurisdictions  also  fully  fund  major  construction  projects,  sidewalks,  greenways,  and  bicycle  facilities  as  well  as  required  local matches to state or federal funding programs.  Bonds also may be used to fund these  capital transportation projects.  The North Georgia counties of the TPO also take advantage of  the  Special  Purpose  Local  Option  Sales  Tax  (SPLOST)  for  funding  capital  and  maintenance  projects.    Other Funding Sources  Other  funding  sources  may  exist  in  the  TPO  area  for  funding  transportation  improvements.   These sources may include local private foundations, state enabling legislation opportunities  such  as  toll  facilities,  dedicated  funding  for  transit,  rail  authorities,  Tax  Increment  Financing  (TIF), Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA), and local taxes or bonds.   Currently,  very  little  of  these  contribute  to  the  TPO’s  program  of  projects  except  for  the  foundations’  support  of  greenways,  sidewalks,  and  bicycle  facilities  within  the  City  of  Chattanooga.  Foundations provide an estimated $1.5 million annually for such projects.  It is  expected  that  these  unique  revenue  sources  may  provide  a  higher  percentage  of  the  TPO’s  revenue for transportation projects in the near future.    Project Prioritization    The performance measures and goals, as legislated in MAP‐21, are to be incorporated into the  metropolitan  Transportation  Improvement  Program  (TIP) 4 .    Details  associated  with  the  performance  measures  being  implemented  by  the  TPO  are  provided  in  Appendix  B:  Project  Application,  Evaluation,  and  Selection  Process.    It  is  the  responsibility  of  the  Chattanooga‐ Hamilton  County/North  Georgia  Transportation  Planning  Organization  to  assure  compliance  with such requirements including consistency with the TPO’s adopted Transportation Plan and  ensure citizens are given opportunity to fully engage in the transportation planning process in  Chattanooga, Hamilton County, and the North Georgia counties of Catoosa, Dade, and Walker.     The TIP is fiscally balanced and includes project phases that have a reasonable expectation of  being ready for implementation by the year listed.  Projects are subject to many considerations  and  actions  from  conception  to  completion  that  may  impede  or  accelerate  their  progress.   These considerations may include policy decisions, changes in design requirements, conflicts  with other scheduled activities, unforeseen circumstances such as cutbacks in funding, shortage  of  manpower,  and  inflation  of  project  costs.    When  projects  are  submitted,  letters  of  commitment to fund the projects are included.  Furthermore, the jurisdictions pass resolutions  for local matching funds for projects in the year of expenditure.  Funding for projects in the first  4 Statutory citation for establishment of performance measures. 22
  23. 23. two years is confirmed to be available and committed.  Project cost estimates are based on best  available  engineering  estimates  provided  by  the  local  jurisdictions  at  the  time  the  TIP  is  developed.    Final  cost  for  the  actual  projects  may  differ,  as  the  projects  are  refined  in  the  project development process prior to construction.  When a project is affected by any of the  factors, the projected fiscal year dates will be adjusted accordingly.    The Chattanooga‐Hamilton County/North Georgia Transportation Planning Organization (TPO)  adopted a resolution on June 2, 1992 setting requirements for the allocation of federal funds.   The  TPO  will  continue  to  adhere  to  the  following  official  policy  in  its  consideration  of  the  distribution of federal and state monies to eligible projects of the TPO’s Metropolitan Planning  Area (MPA).  The following factors will govern decisions of the TPO in the allocation of Federal  Surface Transportation Funds for local projects within the MPA:    1) Federal monies available to the TPO during each fiscal year.    2) The fiscal ability of sub‐entities to provide the required twenty (20) percent local match  to federal funds, if required, within the timeframe required    3) Project costs, including Right‐of‐Way, Preliminary Engineering, Design, and Construction  costs.    4) Incorporation  or  improvement  of  public  transportation  services,  including  special  services for the disabled.    5) Coordination with other public and/or private projects within the TPO MPA (Corridor  Planning).    6) Intermodal opportunities that will facilitate the movement of people and goods without  being hazardous to the environment.    7) Projects that will contribute a high degree of safety, mobility, and service facilities to the  entire TPO MPA.    8) Mileage of eligible streets by functional classification.    9) Population and land use shifts.    10) Traffic capacity.    11) Vehicular accident impacts.    12) Intergovernmental coordination.    Should the expected local matching funds not materialize within the four‐year planning period  of the Transportation Improvement Program, the TPO will have the obligation of reassigning  those  funds  to  a  project  with  documented  commitment  of  the  required  local  match.   23
  24. 24. Furthermore, that project will already have been given a high priority ranking by the TPO.  In no  case will a formula allocation of federal funds to local projects be permitted.  Also, should an  expected project exceed adequate funding within the four‐year period of the Transportation  Improvement Program from some other source to fulfill the development of such project, the  TPO will have the obligation of reassigning those funds to another project.    Business Rules and Policies    For  the  development  of  this  2014‐2017  TIP,  the  TPO  conducted  a  full  evaluation  of  the  TIP  development process, reviewed other MPO TIP development procedures, and implemented a  new Project Application and Selection Process.  The TPO has a new set of established business  rules  which  are  intended  to  serve  as  guiding  principles  for  TPO  staff  when  developing  and  maintaining the TIP.  These rules are as follows:  • Rule 1.  TIP Development Cycle – Prior to the beginning of each major TIP update cycle,  the  TPO  will  detail  a  schedule  of  key  TIP  development  milestones  that  coincide  with  TDOT/GDOT STIP schedule requirements and communicate key dates with local project  sponsors prior to the beginning of the Federal fiscal year (October 1).  Establishing key  dates  at  the  outset  of  each  update  cycle  will  give  project  sponsors  ample  notice  for  scheduling  purposes  and  gathering  the  information  required  to  submit  projects  for  evaluation.    Key  TIP  development  milestones  should  include  dates  for  the  TIP  workshop(s);  issuance  of  the  Call  for  Projects  (if  applicable  for  that  particular  year);  deadline  to  submit  project  applications;  TIP  selection  sub‐committee  meetings;  TPO  Board  meetings;  and  Technical  Coordinating  Committee  (TCC)  and  Interagency  Consultation Committee (IAC) meetings.  The TIP schedule should be posted on‐line, as  well  as emailed  with a hard‐copy  attachment  to  all  local  jurisdictions.    Any  expected  deviations from the dates established at the outset of the TIP update cycle should be  communicated to all project sponsors as early as possible, but no later than four weeks  prior to the originally established date.  • Rule  2.    TIP  Amendment  Cycles  –  TPO  staff  currently  address  administrative  TIP  modifications and amendments that do not require conformity analysis on an as‐needed  basis.    The  TPO  will  continue  to  process  amendments  on  an  as‐needed  basis.    This  provides flexibility for project sponsors to move projects forward more quickly and helps  the TPO manage staff resources by spreading amendments out over time.    • Rule 3.  Project Identification – Projects considered for each TIP cycle are drawn from  the TPO’s adopted long‐range regional transportation plan, as the TIP serves as the first  four (implementation) years of the long‐range planning document.  All TIP projects must  be consistent with the long range transportation plan. New projects (i.e., those projects  not  currently  included  in  the  fiscally  constrained  portion  of  the  transportation  plan)  should be considered for the TIP only when new funds have been identified for a project  that was unable to be fiscally constrained in the transportation plan and the project is  shown in the plan’s illustrative list or when a stand‐alone call for STP‐M or TAP funds is  needed  to  either  1)  program  unobligated  dollars  from  a  previous  fiscal  year,  or  2)  program new funds for a new year of the TIP.  New major capacity additions to the TIP  should  be  considered  as  part  of  a  major  TIP  update  cycle  only,  to  align  conformity  determinations  and  ensure  consistent  regional  priorities  between  the  TIP  and  long‐ 24
  25. 25. range transportation plan.  One, distinct project sponsor should be clearly identified for  each project as part of the TIP application.    • Rule 4.  MPO Controlled TIP Funds – For roadway capacity projects funded all, or in  part, by STP‐M or TAP funds, the TPO will request the project sponsor address access  management  as  a  design  element  and  budget  for  such  as  part  of  the  Preliminary  Engineering phase.  This will provide detail needed by the TPO to work with the project  sponsor and impacted local communities as part of subsequent right‐of‐way (ROW) and  Construction phases to help ensure land use and land development are appropriately  considered as part of project development.    • Rule 5.  TIP Project Evaluation – Based on initial testing of revised TIP project evaluation  procedures applied to the 2014‐2017 metropolitan STP and TAP projects, as described in  Appendix  B,  the  TPO  staff  will  develop  summary  guidance  to  accompany  the  TIP  application on how to provide the appropriate level of detail for project scope, cost, and  schedule and how to define the project sponsor.  This same information will be used at  each  TIP  workshop  to  inform  and  illustrate  for  sponsors  the  required  level  of  detail  when  submitting  a  project  for  Federal  funding.    This  guidance  will  also  include  information for sponsors on how to formally notify the TPO of any changes to project  scope, schedule, and budget.  • Rule 6.  TIP Project Costing – To address potential project cost overruns, the TPO will  consider,  before  the  next  TIP  cycle,  a  Local  Program  Contingency  Fund  which  is  recommended  to  be  five  to  ten  percent  for  each  project  (all  phases:    Preliminary  Engineering, ROW, and Construction) and would be added as an incremental cost to the  original  estimate  submitted  by  the  local  project  sponsor.    The  TPO  would  hold  this  contingency funding in reserve as part of the project’s line item funding.  Should the  project cost exceed the original estimate for a given phase, the TPO would utilize the  reserve funding to cover the additional costs (the project sponsor will be responsible for  providing  the  20  percent  local  match).    Project  cost  overruns  that  exceed  the  contingency would then be considered for TPO approval and potential reprogramming  as described in Rule 8.    • Rule 7.  Project Programming / Phasing – The TPO will consider, before the next TIP  cycle, adoption of a formal phasing schedule requirement for project sponsors of major  capacity  projects  to  help  address  scheduling  and  implementation  challenges.    The  schedule would identify all relevant phases of the project with specific funding sources  (Federal, state, local) as outlined on the TIP project page, but the sponsor would note  for each phase the activities necessary to move the project to the next programmed  phase.  The recommended timeframe expected between programming phases for such  major  construction  projects  is  three  to  four  years  which  is  a  conservative  phasing  schedule for capacity‐adding projects (those associated with air quality conformity).  • Rule 8.  Project Reprogramming – To present, all unobligated projects in the existing TIP  have automatically been reprogrammed by TPO staff unless the staff has been informed  otherwise.    From  this  TIP  forward,  any  project  that  has  exceeded  10  percent  of  the  original cost estimate, any changes to project scope, schedule, or budget that trigger  delays  in  the  excess  of  a  subsequent  programmed  phase,  and/or  any  programmed  phase not obligated within two years will require the project sponsor to complete an  “Exceptions  List”  form  prior  to  the  commencement  of  a  new  TIP  development  cycle.   This list will then be vetted with the TPO Board and/or Committees to determine if the  25
  26. 26. changes/delays are reasonable and project should remain a priority with roll‐over funds  applied,  or  the  project  should  re‐compete  for  Federal  funds  through  the  established  project selection process.  The Exceptions List form will be developed by TPO staff prior  to the next TIP cycle.       Lump Sum Projects, “Groupings”    By mutual agreement between the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT), Georgia  Department  of  Transportation,  and  the  Chattanooga‐Hamilton  County/North  Georgia  Transportation  Planning  Organization  (TPO)  this  Transportation  Improvement  Program  (TIP)  includes some preventative maintenance often denoted as 3‐R improvements and safety type  projects to be lump sum funded with Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), National  Highway Performance Program (NHPP), and/or Surface Transportation Program (STP).  These  lump  sums  are  otherwise  known  as  “Groupings”  and  each  are  further  described  in  the  definitions  section  of  this  document.    The  projects  and  project  locations  are  not  specifically  listed in the project tables or project pages.  Instead the projects are grouped by category of  improvement such as various resurfacing or bridge replacements.  They are minor projects that  do not alter the functional capacity of a facility and do not impact regional air quality emissions.   Minor projects must also be environmentally neutral.  Due to the difficulty with project tracking  the TPO staff has elected to eliminate the use of groupings for TPO controlled project funding  and thus, those projects are evaluated and prioritized by the same process as major projects  and  have  individual  project  pages.    However,  the  TPO  staff  encourages  project  sponsors  to  consider their own groupings when developing projects for consideration such as a citywide  resurfacing program which would include a number of various streets within one jurisdiction.    State and Transit Agency Project Submittal Process    As agreed upon by the State partners, the TPO staff in conjunction with TPO Board membership  review a list of State projects, including those on these National Highway System, to provide  feedback  and/or  prioritization  on  Transportation  Plan  priorities/consistency,  further  phasing  and  development  of  those  projects  based  on  local  support,  growth  pressures,  congestion‐  and/or safety‐related issues, and other major transportation planning documents such as the  Strategic Highway Safety Plan and the Regional ITS Architecture.  The outcome of this review  and/or prioritization is provided to the States for their consideration in developing the projects  for  the  next  TIP  cycle.    A  similar  process  is  conducted  with  the  transit  authority  and  any  partnering  public  transportation  agencies  to  ensure  projects  are  consistent  with  the  Transportation Plan goals and objectives as well as outlined safety and security planning and  programming.  Following the TPO’s official notice of the development process a new TIP cycle,  the  States  and  transit  agencies work  with  the TPO  staff  on  the  development  of  appropriate  local, state, and federal revenues and provide the TPO with a fiscally‐constrained project list.   This  list  is  shared  with  the  TPO  TCC,  Board,  and  public  prior  to  being  considered  for  final  approval of incorporation into the TIP.          26
  27. 27. Project Selection Process    1. The  TPO  staff  meets  with  municipalities  to  determine  status  of  current  projects,  determine  need  for  completion  of  an  Exceptions  List  form  for  potential  roll‐over  projects, and discusses need for new projects.    2. The local government gathers information to justify the need of the projects.    3. A project sponsor completes the online the project application(s) describing proposed  project(s)  for  inclusion  of  the  project(s)  in  the  Transportation  Improvement  Program  (TIP).    4. Preliminary description of the projects, including cost estimates for engineering, right‐ of‐way  requirements,  materials  and  labor,  and  location  maps  are  submitted  by  the  applicant.  Estimates on phasing and length of time for implementation of the project,  including anticipated start and completion dates, are also included.    5. Projects are reviewed for their purpose and assigned a scale category (1, 2, or 3) from  the  adopted  Community  to  Region  Performance  Framework  and  then  evaluated  accordingly  based  the  TPO’s  establish  weights  in  each  scale  for  the  legislated  performance  measures  in  which  the  TPO  established  specific  calculation  criteria  associated with each measure.  This evaluation process also includes congestion criteria  from the adopted Congestion Management Process.  See Appendix B for the TIP project  application and specific project evaluation, selection/criteria, and process.     6. A review committee(s) selected from members of the TPO TCC and Executive Board as  well as interested transportation stakeholders receives and reviews the applications and  project evaluation results then submits a list of prioritized projects for consideration by  the TPO policy committees.    7. Utilizing the desired phasing requested by the project sponsors and the priorities of the  committee(s), the TPO staff fiscally constrains to the best extent possible the projects  based on the TPO’s available STP‐M and TAP designated allocation of funding.      8. At a scheduled or called TPO TCC meeting, the TCC reviews the list of prioritized projects  of  the  review  committee(s)  and  recommends  the  list  or  a  revised  list  to  the  TPO  Executive Board.    9. The recommended projects undergo public review.    10. The TPO Executive Board reviews the recommended list of projects, public comment for  consideration, and approves the recommended list or a revised list for inclusion in the  TIP.    11. All applicants are informed of the status of their projects.  The applicants whose projects  were approved by the TPO may then request to receive contracts from the Tennessee or  27
  28. 28. Georgia Departments of Transportation or the Federal government for receipts of funds  and/or engineering and contract management of the projects.      Amendment Process    During the four year cycle of the TIP, project obligation dates and other project information  such as costs and scope may change.  The TPO strives to accommodate revisions to the TIP as  expeditiously  as  possible  within  the  limits  imposed  by  federal  guidelines  and  regulations.   However, some changes may require revisions to the Transportation Plan and/or Conformity  Determination Report, thus taking longer than expected.    TDOT Amendment and Adjustment Process/Criteria    Introduction:  The  amendment  and  adjustment  criteria  are  to  establish  two  categories  of  actions  to  meet  Federal requirements and streamline the maintenance of the TIP.  One category of action is a  “TIP  Amendment”  and  the  other  is  a  “TIP  Administrative  Adjustment.”    For  projects  falling  within the GA portion of the TPO, TPO staff will follow these TDOT procedures unless otherwise  specified in the Georgia Portion at the end of this section.    STIP/TIP Amendment:  • An  amendment  is  a  revision  to  the  TIP  that  involves  major  changes  to  a  project  or  the  overall program and must meet the requirements of 23 CFR450.216 and 450.326regarding  public  review  and  comment,  re‐demonstration  of  fiscal  constraint,  and  transportation  conformity. An amendment is required when changes to the TIP include:  • A  major  change  in  the  total  project  cost(excluding  groupings)  (see  Project  Cost  Change  Thresholds, page 4); or  • Adding a new project or deleting a project from the TIP; or  • A major change of project scope; examples include, but are not limited to, changing the  number  of  through‐lanes,  adding/deleting  non‐motorized  facilities,  changing  mode  (e.g.,  rolling stock or facility type for transit), changing capital category (i.e., transit funding), or  changing termini; or  • Any  change  requiring  a  new  regional  air  quality  conformity  finding,  where  applicable  (including a grouping);     Amendment Documentation and Authorization Procedures:   The  TIP  may  be  amended  at  any  time,  but  amendments  require  federal  approval  and  redetermination of TIP fiscal constraint and air quality conformity, where applicable. TDOT will  review each amendment and submit the amendment to the appropriate Federal Agency.  The  federal agencies will review and respond to a formal written request for amendment approval  from TDOT within 10 business days of receipt.           28
  29. 29. Authorization:  The Federal Highway Administration and FTA match project authorization requests to the TIP  prior to approving a request for project authorization. Therefore, all amendments to the TIP  need to be approved by FHWA or FTA prior to TDOT requesting federal authorization approvals.    Administrative Adjustments:  A  TIP  administrative  adjustment  is  a  minor  change  from  the  approved  TIP.    Administrative  adjustments must be consistent with 23 CFR 450, but they do not require public review and  comment,  re‐demonstration  of  fiscal  constraint,  or  a  conformity  determination  in  nonattainment or maintenance areas. TIP administrative adjustments are defined as follows:   • A minor change in the total project cost (see Project Cost Change Thresholds, below)  • A  minor  change  in  project  description  that  does  not  change  the  air  quality  conformity  finding in maintenance and/or non‐attainment areas; or   • A minor change in project description/termini that is for clarification and does not change  the project scope; or  • Shifting  funds  between  projects  within  a  TIP  (i.e.,  funding  sources  and  projects  already  identified  in  the  TIP)  if  the  change  does  not  result  in  a  cost  increase  greater  than  the  amendment  threshold  (see  Project  Cost  Change  Thresholds,  below)  for  the  total  project  cost of all phases shown within the approved TIP; or  • Adding an amount of funds already identified in the TIP for the current or previous year(s)  if:  o The  funds  are  currently  identified  in  the  TIP  either  in  an  existing  project  or  as  available funds and  o The change does not result in a cost increase greater than the amendment threshold  (see Project Cost Change Thresholds, page) for the total project cost of all phases  shown within the approved TIP; or  • Moving  projects  from  year  to  year  within  an  approved  TIP,  except  those  that  cross  air  quality horizon years; or  • Adding a prior phase, such as environmental  or location study, preliminary engineering or  right‐of‐way,  to  a  project  in  the  TIP  so  long  as  such  a  change  does  not  result  in  a  cost  increase  greater  than  the  amendment  threshold  (see  Project  Cost  Change  Thresholds,  below) for the total project cost of all phases shown within the approved TIP; or  • Changes  required  to  follow  FHWA  or  FTA  instructions  as  to  the  withdrawal  of  funds  or  reestablishment of funds withdrawn at the request of FHWA or FTA; or  • Moving funds between similarly labeled groupings, regardless of percent of change; or  • Adjustments in revenue to match actual revenue receipts.    Administrative Adjustment Documentation and Authorization Procedures:  Administrative  adjustments  do  not  require  federal  approval.  Adjustments  made  to  TDOT‐ sponsored  projects  in  the  TIP  will  be  made  by  TDOT  with  notification  to  the  MPO  upon  submission of the adjustment to FHWA/FTA. The MPO will make the changes to funding tables,   and project sheets as needed without the need for distribution.    Project Cost Change Thresholds:  For  changes  to  the  cost  of  projects  (excluding  groupings),  a  sliding  scale  is  outlined  to  determine which category of revision is required. All measurements for these cost changes will  29

The  State  DOTs  contract  with  the  local  municipalities  for  maintenance.    Each  municipality  recognizes the necessity of O&M and provides for their own plan and policy that is adequate to  fit their specific needs.  The TPO accepts these policies as their plan for the TPO planning area.   Each  county  and  municipality  in  the  Metropolitan  Planning  Area  has  submitted  a  letter  of  commitment to the operations and maintenance under their jurisdiction.  These letters are on  file  at  the  offices  of  the  Regional  Planning  Agency.    CARTA  conducts  the  majority  of  its  operations and maintenance with local forces (in‐house employees) and its operational services  are carried out by full and part‐time drivers.  CARTA contracts some of its Job Access services to  a third‐party for daycare transportation. Depending on the repairs to be completed, CARTA will  at times contract certain maintenance and repair projects to third‐party vendors.  The funding  sources for CARTA’s operations and maintenance include sections 5307 (the Urbanized Area  Formula  Funding  program)  which  absorbs  the  5316  (the  Jobs  Access  and  Reverse  Commute  program) and 5317 (the New Freedoms program) under MAP‐21 and 5309 (the Fixed Guideway  Modernization program used only for the incline railway) as well as local funding from the City  of Chattanooga and Hamilton County.  In addition to these funding programs for maintenance,  the City of Chattanooga and Hamilton County fund CARTA for various maintenance projects.    The financial summary tables, provided at the end of this section, for both the Tennessee and  Georgia portions of the TPO demonstrate that there are reasonably expected operation and  maintenance revenues and expenditures for the life of the plan.  These numbers were derived  from the in progress 2040 Regional Transportation Plan, the endorsed 2014‐2017 local project  list, and the proposed TIP in its entirety.  The plan shows that the system will be maintained and  operated during the life of the plan.  Air Quality Conformity    In  January  2005,  the  Environmental  Protection  Agency  (EPA)  designated  the  Chattanooga  region  as  a  particulate  matter  (PM2.5)  non‐attainment  area.  This  designation  means  the  Chattanooga  region  exceeds  the  allowable  amount  of  PM2.5  set  by  EPA  in  the  National  Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS). Particulate matter air pollution refers to microscopic,  invisible airborne particles made up of dust soot, smoke and liquid droplets. The PM2.5 non‐ attainment area includes Hamilton County in Tennessee and Catoosa and Walker Counties in  Georgia.     Transportation conformity is one of the major requirements placed on non‐attainment areas in  order to ensure that the air quality is improved to an acceptable level.  If it is not demonstrated,  then  an  area  may  lose  its  ability  to  obtain  federal  funding  for  certain  roadway  projects.  Conformity  of  the  TIP  is  demonstrated  when  it  is  shown  that  vehicle  emissions  from  the  transportation system do not exceed the budget as prescribed in the State Implementation Plan  (SIP).     All of the roadway projects included in this TIP have been drawn from the 2035 Long Range  Transportation Plan (LRTP) for which the transportation conformity finding was most recently  approved by USDOT on March 5, 2010. Since this plan meets conformity regulations of the EPA  and USDOT under 40 CFR Part 93, and has been approved by appropriate agencies, this TIP is  conforming. The Conformity Determination Report is available at www.chcrpa.org/TPO.  31
  32. 32.   Interagency consultation was used in the development of the TIP as required by 40 CFR 93.105.   Documentation  of  this  consultation  is  documented  in  Appendix  D.    A  Conformity  Technical  Memorandum also accompanies this TIP document as a supplemental standalone update to the  2035 Conformity Determination Report approved in 2010.  The Technical Memorandum can be  found in Volume 2 at the end of this document.  Currently, the State Implementation Plan Air  Emissions Budgets for the TPO’s Tennessee and Georgia counties do not include transportation  control measures.    Fiscal Constraint    This 2014 – 2017 Transportation Improvement Program is fiscally constrained, in accordance to  federal requirements.  All projects in the TIP reflect expected funding from the various revenue  sources from fiscal years 2014 through 2017.  Also, a status report of the previous 2011 – 2014  TIP  is  provided  in  Appendix  A.    Any  project  from  the  previous  TIP  that  was  unable  to  be  completed or fully obligated has been carried over to the 2014 – 2017 Program, and remains  fiscally constrained.  All project sponsors were required to revise their cost estimates for year of  expenditure  (YOE)  dollars  based  on  a  minimum  3%  inflation  rate.    Some  project  sponsors  included the inflation rate within their 20% contingency.  Project sponsors were provided cost  estimating  information  supplied  by  TDOT/GDOT  and  were  required  to  submit  project  considerations with YOE costs.  The TPO reviewed and confirmed project cost estimates were in  YOE prior to approving the project list which included CARTA transit projects.  The following  pages contain the financial summary tables for both the Tennessee and Georgia portions and  the charts below depict funding percentages by general improvement type of capacity‐adding  roadway  projects,  alternative  transportation  improvements,  operational  or  operations  and  maintenance type activities, studies, etc. The financial summary table on the following page  includes  estimated  funding  amounts,  programmed  funds  and  any  remaining  funds  for  each  program year within the TIP.                      Individual Project Pages    Project pages provide a substantial amount of information about each project programmed for  funding within the four‐year program.  The information includes sufficient description such as  32
