The TIP is an annual document that describes the federally funded projects and activities that are programmed for the RPA-1 region in the next four years. It is a fiscally constrained plan that identifies the use of federal funds in highway, bridge, walking, bicycling, and transit projects. The projects identified within this document may receive federal funding from a number of different sources which are distributed through a variety of methods, some through formula, others are discretionary (earmarked), and some by a competitive granting process.
Once approved, the RPA-1 TIP is included in the Iowa Department of Transportation's Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).
Transportation Planning Work Program annually outlines the transportation planning activities each RPA will undertake for the next fiscal year.
The Passenger Transportation Plan is a document that is developed to serve as a mobility management tool to help meet the specific passenger transportation needs of the region and further the development of the local and regional public transportation system. As of previous federal transportation legislation (MAP-21), annual updates will no longer be required. The PTP will undergo a full update every five years.
The Public Participation Plan's outline in detail the process each RPA will follow to adequately involve the public in their transportation planning activities.
RPA-1’s Long-Range, Multimodal Transportation Plan, Safe Mobility for Everyone, has a planning horizon year of 2045—25 years counted from the year of adoption and rounded up by one year to reach a decade midpoint. The plan is intended to guide transportation investments and policy in the five-county region in support of a transportation system that is safe for all users and modes, and that facilitates the efficient movement of people and goods. The plan includes a description of the region's existing conditions; identifies current transportation challenges; anticipates potential future needs; and explores various strategies for addressing those challenges and needs. The plan identifies short-term and long-term projects and policy goals and discusses potential funding sources to aid in achieving the goals of the plan. This document also serves as a source of information for local decisionmakers and elected officials of the region.
The RPA-1 Transportation Policy Board adoped Safe Mobility for Everyone as the region’s official, long-range, multimodal transportation plan via resolution on September 19, 2019.
Hard copies of Safe Mobility for Everyone are available for reference at both UERPC office locations, as well as the following public libraries in our region: Waukon, New Albin, Lansing, Elkader, Strawberry Point, Oelwein, Fayette, West Union, Ossian, Calmar, Guttenberg, and Cresco.
