The Six-Year Transportation Improvement Plan (STIP)
The Six-Year Transportation Improvement Plan (STIP) is a planning document used by the State of Washington; projects that have qualified for state funding, or will be considered for state funding need to be identified in the STIP document. The City does have the ability to amend the TIP/STIP at a later date should another project be identified that the City might consider in a grant program.
State of Washington Transportation Improvement Board (TIB)
The Washington State TIB funds high-priority transportation projects in communities throughout the state to enhance the movement of people, goods, and services. TIB is an independent state agency, created by the Legislature, that distributes and manages street construction and maintenance grants to 320 cities and urban counties throughout Washington State. Funding for TIB’s grant programs comes from revenue generated by three cents of the statewide gas tax.
