One of the core duties of any RPO or MPO is the identification and prioritization of projects for consideration in the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The State’s TIP document is a summary of the transportation projects across all modes that are either underway, in the project development process, or planned for implementation in the next 10 years.
NCDOT Draft STIP 2018-2027
The NWPRPO has recommended the following list of projects for consideration in Prioritization. These projects were scored and a draft was released on October 7, 2016. The NWPRPO is working through County TIP Advisory Committees to assign points to projects based on our approved methodology. Projects were scored and ranked using a formula based on criteria such as safety, congestion, cost-benefit and local priorities.
