The N.C. Department of Transportation wants to hear from North Carolinians about top-priority transportation projects that they think should be submitted to compete with other transportation improvements across the state for funding in the next State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).
The STIP is NCDOT’s 10-year transportation plan, and it is updated every two years. The N.C. Board of Transportation approved the current STIP, for year 2016 to 2025, in June.
The Strategic Transportation Investments law established the Strategic Mobility Formula, which uses a data-driven approach to funding transportation improvements on the statewide, regional and local (division) levels. This allows NCDOT to meet the state’s top priorities while still addressing individualized local transportation needs.
