State Transportation Improvement Program
The State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) was created by the North Carolina General Assembly through the Strategic Transportation Investments (STI) Law with the intent to provide funding for roadway, public transportation, bicycle, pedestrian, rail, and aviation projects. Each MPO, RPO, and NCDOT Division submitted a list of scores based on the Mobility Formula generated by the STI.
In December 2014, the NCDOT released a funding schedule consisting of over 1,100 total projects. These projects were broken down by NCDOT Division (Division 5), and planning agency (CAMPO). The following projects have either been recently completed, are under construction, are scheduled to receive funding, or are targeted to receive funding sometime in the future.
