In August 2017, after a nearly two-year process, the N.C. Board of Transportation approved, the
2018-2027 State Transportation Improvement Program, which identifies transportation projects that will receive funding from 2018 to 2027.
The document – the second 10-year plan developed under the 2013
Strategic Transportation Investments law – consists of 750 highway projects across North Carolina and is estimated to support at least 300,000 jobs.
The data-driven approach to identify projects – called
Strategic Prioritization – yielded a comprehensive State Transportation Improvement Program with about 1,200 projects funded across all 100 North Carolina counties and all modes of transportation.
NCDOT identified ways to accelerate hundreds of projects, which allowed an additional 144 projects to be funded. This resulted in a total of 1,367 projects in the STIP.
