The Bristol MPO has prepared a draft of the Fiscal Years 2023-2026 Transportation Improvement Program for approval at its meeting of the Executive Board on December 16, 2022 at 10:00 AM EST. The TIP describes and lists capital projects approved for funding for the fiscal years indicated within the Bristol TN/VA Metropolitan Planning Area, which includes the municipalities of the City of Bristol Tennessee, the City of Bristol Virginia, and the Town of Abingdon, along with unincorporated areas in Sullivan County Tennessee and Washington County Virginia. There are several types of projects within the TIP. These projects include: highways, public transportation, bicycle/pedestrian facilities, traffic signalization, and intersection improvements. The projects in the TIP are derived from the 2045 Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) adopted in 2021.
Public involvement activities and time established for public review and comment on the TIP will satisfy the Program of Projects requirement for the Federal Transit Administration Urbanized Area Formula Program. The file on this webpage contains the draft document and is available for review online or in person at the City of Bristol Tennessee City Hall, City of Bristol Virginia City Hall, the Town of Abingdon Virginia Town Hall, and in a yet-to-be-determined location in Washington County.
