Description

The N.C. Department of Transportation's transportation plan – called the State Transportation Improvement Program – identifies the construction funding and scheduling for transportation projects at the state level over a 10-year period. Although federal law requires the plan to be updated every four years, the Department proactively updates it every two years to ensure it accurately reflects the state's current financial situation.

The Strategic Transportation Investments law also mandates ongoing evaluation and improvement to ensure the process continues to be responsive to North Carolina's diverse needs. This is accomplished through what is known as a "prioritization work group," which is primarily comprised of professional engineers and transportation planners.

The data-driven process to update the State Transportation Improvement Program for 2018-2027 – called strategic prioritization – began in fall 2015 when NCDOT and local planning organizations gathered public feedback on projects and later submitted projects to be evaluated – or scored – for the plan.

Latest Information

On Jan. 5, 2017, NCDOT released the draft of the 2018-2027 State Transportation Improvement Program. Projects in the draft plan were determined based on strategic prioritization at the statewide, regional and division levels – the three categories in which NCDOT distributes funding – as well as public feedback and other factors. Those factors include the completion of environmental studies and engineering plans, corridor spending caps and federal and state funding restrictions.

Details about the draft 10-year plan are listed on this page in the "Highlights" section. Details about projects funded under the current STIP that have changed in the draft STIP can be found here.

The Department is now asking for feedback on the process to develop the draft plan. Public meetings are scheduled across the state from March 28 until May 16, and comments may be submitted online, over the phone or via mail. More information can be found on this page under "Get Involved."

Next Steps

The Board of Transportation is expected to approve the final 2018-2027 State Transportation Improvement Program in June 2017.

Highlights

The Draft 2018-2027 State Transportation Improvement Program is made up of 1,421 projects, including 298 non-highway projects (e.g. aviation, public transit, rail, etc.), in every county across the state.

Also included are 376 interstate maintenance and bridge projects and 61 safety projects that are prioritized under what is called "alternate criteria." Alternate criteria projects undergo a separate prioritization process.

Below is a breakdown of the number of projects by transportation and funding categories:
