Public Invited to Provide Feedback on Draft Schedule for Transportation Projects

The N.C. Department of Transportation wants your feedback on its Draft 10-Year State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), as it takes one of the final steps toward implementing the new STI law.

During the past year and a half, we have been working with the legislature, local planning organizations, and other stakeholders across the state to implement the law and develop the 2016-2025 State Transportation Improvement Program.

We have now produced the 2016-2025 Draft STIP, the first under this new process, and it’s one of our most comprehensive programs ever. The document includes 1,073 projects across all transportation modes and all 100 counties.

Now, we need your feedback. We want to know what you think about:

  • The process to develop the STIP and ideas for improvement
  • The variety and geographic diversity of the projects

We are hosting a series of 10 information sessions across the state in March and April where you can stop in, ask questions and provide us feedback by filling out a brief comment form. If you cannot attend a session in person, you can easily submit your comments electronically via our MindMixer page.

The interactive map below will help you find the division in which your county resides. Then, see the table at the bottom of the page to get details on the meeting in your area.

Division Map

Each of NCDOT’s 14 divisions includes several counties. To locate the division your county resides in, move your mouse over the area where you live until you see your county’s name appear. Scroll down for details on your division’s public meeting.

Meeting Information

The information sessions provide you an opportunity to learn more about the process used to develop the Draft STIP, view an interactive map of projects, view a brief video, review project information with NCDOT staff, and provide us feedback on the process through a brief survey.

The sessions will be held from 4 – 7 p.m., in an open-house format. There will not be a formal presentation, and you can attend at any time during those hours. Plan to attend to learn more or share your comments. The final meeting will also be webcast. The link to participate will be provided closer to the meeting date.

If you are unable to come to a meeting, you can submit your comments electronically via our MindMixer page. The page includes the same informational materials that will be available at the meetings. You will need to create a username and password, and sign in to access the materials and survey.
