Although the current 2020-2029 STIP has been adopted by the N.C. Board of Transportation, it is still pending federal approval by the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Transit Administration. Therefore, the 2018-2027 STIP will continue to be updated monthly for federal authorization until the 2020-2029 STIP is federally approved, which is expected in March 2020.
In August 2017, the N.C. Board of Transportation adopted the 2018-2027 State Transportation Improvement Program, which identified transportation projects that will receive funding from 2018 to 2027.
This document was the second 10-year plan developed under the 2013 Strategic Transportation Investments law and consisted of over 1,300 projects across all 100 North Carolina counties and all modes of transportation. Most of these projects were identified through the data-driven scoring approach called Strategic Prioritization.
