NATS Transportation Improvement Program

The Transportation Improvement Program consists of a four-year schedule of projects developed by assessing the condition of the existing system. The program identifies local road projects for implementation based on community input and financial resources. Projects are prioritized for implementation based on technical analysis, existing roadway conditions and opportunities for project coordination with cities, townships, villages or the Michigan Department of Transportation.

The program:

  • Reflects involvement by citizens and elected officials
  • Is used to coordinate transportation projects and programs with other jurisdictions and agencies
  • Is a multi-year planning tool for the development of the transportation facilities within the MPO
  • Is required for state and federal funding programs
