Strategic Transportation Investments


STI The Strategic Transportation Investments, also known as the Strategic Mobility Formula, is a new way to prioritize and fund transportation projects, for all modes, to ensure they provide the maximum benefit for our state. With the new formula, the NCDOT will be able to use existing revenues more efficiently to improve transportation infrastructure as well as create jobs and help to boost the economy. The new formula went into effect on July 15, 2015. Projects funded for construction before that date will proceed as scheduled and projects not funded after that date will be ranked according to the new formula.

The new formula was developed because the state gas tax, highway use tax and DMV fees can no longer provide enough funding to build all of the transportation improvements needed to attract new industry, reduce congestion and connect citizens to new opportunities in North Carolina.

This new formula is data driven and requires local input from both NCDOT Division 7 and 8 as well as the Piedmont Triad RPO. All transportation projects are broken down into three categories: statewide, regional, and division level.

More information regarding the STI can be found here.
