At the December 15 meeting of the Boston Region MPO, board members voted to approve an amendment to the federal fiscal years (FFYs) 2017-21 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). Amendment One was endorsed to better align the TIP with the Capital Investment Plan of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT), as well as to provide some project-level detail for the MBTA’s investment programs in FFY 2017. (For additional information on the MBTA’s investment programs for FFYs 2017–21, please refer to this table.) Other changes that were incorporated in Amendment One include the repurposing of earmark funds for highway projects.
