The FY 2018-2027 MTIP document was adopted by the MPO on November 8, 2017. This document is a subset of the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) adopted by the NC Board of Transportation in August 2017. These documents are collectively referred to as the TIP.
The FY 2018-2017 MTIP was developed through a well documented and transparent public process consistent with the requirements of the state Strategic Transportation Investments (STI) Act and federal regulatory requirements. The Strategic Prioritization Process is the methodology NCDOT uses to rank and identify projects for the TIP. The Strategic Prioritization Process is primarily performance-based and includes an evaluation of all modes as well as local input through the MPO and NCDOT Division 7. The prioritization process is modified for each TIP cycle. For the FY 2018-2027 TIP, the process was known as Prioritization 4.0 or P 4.0.
Public involvement is an important aspect of the Strategic Prioritization Process and TIP development and adoption. The MPO held three public review periods during the Prioritization 4.0 / FY 2018-2027 MTIP development process. The documents as released and public comments received are provided below.
Public Review Period I (February - July 2016)
Public Review Period II (July - August 2016)
Public Review Period III (September 2017)
