NCDOT Prioritization

Overview

Prioritization is NCDOT’s decision making tool for developing the next Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), which is a listing of projects to be delivered within an upcoming five-year work program.

Projects of all modes, including highway, bicycle/pedestrian, transit, and others are scored based on a combination of quantitative data and local input.  The quantitative evaluation consists of criteria such as congestion and safety, and analyzing project benefits compared to cost, as well as expected economic impacts.  Local input comes from the priorities of the local Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) and NCDOT Division Offices. 

Additional information can be found on NCDOT’s Strategic Transportation Investments webpage

CRTPO’s NCDOT P3.0 Local Input Points Allocation Process

A 30-day public comment period on CRTPO’s DRAFT list of projects proposed to receive local input points was conducted from June 19 until July 21. A summary of the public comments received may be viewed here.

Local Input Points from MPOs and NCDOT Divisions contribute to the final project scores for Regional Impact and Division Needs tier projects under P3.0 – (see STI legislation for more details)

CRTPO is eligible for allocating the following amount of local input points:

  • 2,500 for Regional Impact category projects
  • 2,500 for Division Needs category projects

CRTPO developed a methodology for allocating its local input points that includes a quantitative, qualitative and public involvement component. CRTPO conducted a two-week public comment period from January 28, 2014 to Wednesday, February 12, 2014 to obtain comments on its proposed Prioritization 3.0 (P3.0) Draft Local Input Point Methodology. View the summary of public comments received on CRTPO’s draft local points methodology here.

CRTPO Points Allocation Process Flowchart

A subcommittee of TCC members was formed to ensure that the allocation of CRTPO’s local input points was consistent with the methodology that has been adopted by the MPO and conditionally approved by the NCDOT-Strategic Prioritization Office of Transportation. The subcommittee endorsed the assignment of 2,500 local input points to 25 highway and 1 non-highway Regional Impact tier projects. The projects proposed for local input points assignment in the Regional Impact and Division Needs tiers can be viewed below:
