Six-Year Improvement Program

What is the SYIP?

As required by law, the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) allocates public funds to transportation projects over six-fiscal years, comprising the Six-Year Improvement Program (SYIP). Projects include improvements to the interstate, primary, secondary and urban highway systems, public transit, ports and airports and other programs.

SYIP Process

The CTB updates the SYIP each fiscal year. As revenue estimates are updated, new priorities are identified and existing projects advance. The fiscal year starts July 1 and ends June 30.

Every fall, public meetings are held across the state on project priorities and the SYIP. Public input is taken into consideration as the next update of the SYIP is drafted and presented to the CTB in the spring. Public meetings are held on the draft SYIP and the CTB adopts the final program in June.
