2023-2032 STIP Development

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The N.C. Department of Transportation's transportation plan – called the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) – identifies the construction funding and schedule for projects over a 10-year period. NCDOT updates the STIP approximately every two years.

The Strategic Transportation Investments (STI) law mandates ongoing evaluation and improvement to ensure the process responds to North Carolina's diverse needs. This is accomplished by a prioritization work group consisting primarily of professional engineers and transportation planners.

The data-driven process to update the STIP is called Strategic Prioritization. The cycle to update the STIP for 2023-2032 — called Prioritization 6.0 or P6.0 — began in fall 2019 when NCDOT divisions and local planning organizations started gathering public feedback on projects, which will be submitted for evaluation and scoring.​​
