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.
