The NC Department of Transportation (NCDOT) released the Draft 2018-2027 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) in January 2017 and the Board of Transportation adopted the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) at its November 2017 meeting. The STIP lists projects selected for funding and schedules for right-of-way and construction. The 2018-2027 Metropolitan TIP (MTIP) and was adopted by the Transportation Advisory Committee on November 2017. The MTIP includes projects in the STIP for the Greensboro Urban Area.

The Adopted 2018-2027 MTIP includes the entire document, with explanatory information and supporting analysis. The 2018-2017 MTIP Amendment amended the MTIP document to be compliant with the FAST ACT requirements. The 2018-2027 MTIP provides the most current project tables as amended by the MPO and the NCDOT.

  • Adopted 2018-2027 MTIP - Full document as adopted November 2017
  • Amendment 1 - Amended document as adopted June 2018 along with the 2040 MTP. These documents were amended to comply with federal regulations to establish performance measures for safety and state the MPO would support the measure through planning and programming projects that contribute toward the accomplishment of the State’s targets. The amendment has been made to ensure transportation projects are able to continue to move through the planning, design and construction.
  • New Amendment - Amends the 2040 MTP along with the 2018-2027 MTIP. The amendment complies with federal regulations to establish performance measures for infrastructure condition, infrastructure reliability, and transit assets. The amendment has been made to ensure transportation projects are able to continue to move through the planning, design and construction.
  • Current 2018-2027 MTIP - project tables as amended through March 2019.
The STIP lists projects selected for funding and schedules for project related activities such as right-of-way and construction. The MTIP includes only those projects in the Greensboro Urban Area while the STIP includes all projects in the state. Projects in the MTIP include those developed through the MPO's ongoing Priority Needs Process. The projects reflect those identified in the MPO's Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP).

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.

State law requires MPOs and RPOs to approve local methodologies for applying local input points to priority projects. State law requires NCDOT to review the methodologies for compliance with STI requirements. NCDOT approval is required for the methodologies to be considered valid for use in the Strategic Prioritization Process.

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.
