Schedules and Approvals

The majority of highway, bicycle, and pedestrian projects contained in the CMAP TIP are accomplished through the IDOT state letting process. As such, the regular schedule for amending the TIP is derived to meet deadlines associated with the state’s schedule. The state letting schedule, a master schedule of meetings and due dates, and a calendar of TIP amendment actions for each FFY are posted on the TIP Programmer Resources page.

Each formal amendment period requires the submittal of new TIP projects and changes to existing projects ten days prior to CMAP’s Transportation Committee.  TIP changes associated with the semi-annual conformity determination are due a minimum of three months prior to the MPO Policy Committee meeting at which approval will be sought.  Once reviewed by the public, and approved by either the Transportation Committee or MPO Policy Committee, the approval is entered into the eTIP database, and IDOT, FHWA, and FTA are notified of the approval. Following IDOT review for inclusion in the STIP, their approval is entered into eTIP, and FHWA and FTA are notified that the amendment is available for federal review. Upon FHWA approval in eTIP, all reviewing parties and CMAP receive this notice:

CMAP Formal Amendment [number] has been approved by [name], FHWA on [date]. FHWA can now consider project authorization requests related to this TIP amendment.

Upon FTA approval in eTIP, the same parties receive this notice:

CMAP Formal Amendment [number] has been approved by [name], FTA on [date]. The public transportation projects listed in the TIP amendment report provided are eligible for FTA funding.

These federal approvals establish the new approved TIP project list. The approval dates for all amendments are reported on the Amendments tab of the eTIP public website. Notes from reviewers may also be displayed.

Prior to May 2018, approval letters for each TIP amendment were issued by FHWA and FTA.  The section below contains links to those approvals.

Standard Conformity Language

Section 26-11.03(d) Information for NEPA Documents or Project Reports of the IDOT Bureau of Design and Environment manual requires the following standard language regarding the status of the project with regard to the Clean Air Act conformity regulations to be included in the environmental documentation.

This project is included in the FY 2019-2024 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) endorsed by the Metropolitan Planning Organization Policy Committee of the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) for the region in which the project is located. Projects in the TIP are considered to be consistent with the 2050 regional transportation plan endorsed by CMAP. The project is within the fiscally constrained portion of the plan.

On October 24, 2018, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) determined that the 2050 regional transportation plan conforms with the State Implementation Plan (SIP) and the transportation-related requirements of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. On October 24, 2018, the FHWA and the FTA determined that the TIP also conforms with the SIP and the Clean Air Act Amendments. These findings were in accordance with 40 CFR Part 93, "Determining Conformity of Federal Actions to State or Federal Implementation Plans."

The project's design concept and scope are consistent with the project information used for the TIP conformity analysis. Therefore, this project conforms to the existing State Implementation Plan and the transportation-related requirements of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments.

The TIP number for this project is __________________.
