Strategic Transportation Investment (STI) Priorities for the Winston-Salem Urban Area MPO

The N.C. Department of Transportation’s transportation plan – called the State Transportation Improvement Program or STIP – 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 State’s transportation department proactively updates it every two years to ensure it accurately reflects the state’s current financial situation.  

The data-driven process to update the State Transportation Improvement Program for 2017-2027 – 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.  

On Jan. 5, 2017, NCDOT released the draft of the 2017 – 2027 State Transportation Improvement Program.  Projects in the draft plan were determined based on strategic prioritization at the statewide, regional and divisional levels, 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.

Now that the draft plan has been released, NCDOT and the WSMPO will hold separate public comment periods this spring to seek input on the document.  The Board of Transportation is expected to approve the final 2017-2027 State Transportation Improvement Program in June 2017.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Fredrick Haith, Planning Development Coordinator.
