Prioritization 2.0 Final Scores (Released January 31, 2012):

 

 

Background Information:

Upon taking office in January 2009, Governor Purdue issued Executive Order No. 2, calling for Transportation Reform at the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT). As part of that effort, NCDOT’s Strategic Planning Office of Transportation (SPOT) was charged with developing data driven criteria to rank transportation projects statewide, with the goal of making the process more transparent and easier to understand. The initial prioritization process, Prioritization 1.0, focused on highway projects and was used last year as part of the development of the draft State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The process is based on a combination of quantitative data, qualitative input and multi-modal characteristics. MPOs, RPOs and NCDOT Division Offices provide the qualitative input by submitting priority projects to SPOT.

NCDOT has built upon the efforts of the first prioritization process (Prioritization 1.0) to refine and enhance the way transportation projects are scored and ranked. Prioritization 2.0 was introduced in the spring of 2011, and includes enhanced scoring models for highway projects, as well as non-highway projects. New candidate projects were submitted to SPOT in July 2011. After being scored using SPOT’s quantitative scoring methodology, local input ranking will be applied and final scores will be released. Projects submitted by MUMPO can be found below.

Prioritization of these projects will help drive the development of the next 10-year Work Program scheduled to be released in July 2012. The Department's Prioritization process is solely focused on ranking projects.  More information regarding this process can be found on the NCDOT Transportation Reform page.

The table below includes information that was developed during the P2.0 process, and was used by the TCC and MPO to make recommendations about which MUMPO projects should be included in the prioritization database.

Highway Projects Bike & Ped Projects Transit Projects CMAQ

All quantitative scores were released by NCDOT on September 29, 2011.  Local Input Points/Ranks for highway, bicycle & pedestrian, and transit projects were submitted to NCDOT by December 16, 2011. Final scores are anticipated to be released in early 2012.

 

Presentations:

The CRTPO took action to approve the 2016-2025 TIP, amendments to the 2040 MTP, and an air quality conformity determination report at its August 19, 2015 meeting. Following CRTPO’s approval, the USDOT (FHWA) approved program years 2016 through 2019 of the TIP, and NCDOT approved the 2016-2025 TIP. The approvals by CRTPO, NCDOT, and FHWA allow for work to begin on projects within the 2016-2025 TIP.

CRTPO TIP projects can be viewed in the maps and lists by county below.

Projects identified through the STI process are color-coded by tier. Transition Projects are colored brown and are those projects that were programmed to the 2012-2018 TIP prior to the adoption of the STI legislation. Examples of transition projects within CRTPO include:

•    I-4750, I-5405 I-77 Express Lanes Project
•    R-3329 US 74 Monroe Bypass
•    I-3819A: I-40 & I-77 Interchange Improvements

Transition projects have been incorporated into the 2016-2025 TIP during the adoption process.

Bonus Allocation & STP-DA Projects

CRTPO has two sources of discretionary transportation funding sources in which projects were programmed into the TIP. A subcommittee of TCC members developed a process to prioritize projects, and program them into CRTPO’s TIP. The Strategic Transportation Investments (STI) legislation contains incentives for local funds contributions and the acceptance of Toll projects, in order to reduce the cost of a project to NCDOT. The incentives are referred to as Bonus Allocations and are distributed off the top of the State’s Transportation Program, thus not affecting expected funding distributions that a region or NCDOT Division would normally receive.

Surface Transportation Program – Direct Attributable (STP-DA) is a federal transportation program that allocates funding to MPOs classified as Transportation Management Areas (TMA). These funds are subject to a 20% local match, which is usually assessed to the project sponsor.

Bonus Allocation and STP-DA projects can be viewed on the TIP lists and maps above.

2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan Amendments
MTP Amendments
Following the release of the DRAFT STIP by NCDOT, and the prioritization and programming of Bonus Allocation funds to projects, a series of amendments to the 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) Amendments were required to ensure that the plan conforms to CRTPO’s TIP. Amendments were required to the 2040 MTP for the following reasons:

  • To add new projects that were not previously in the 2040 MTP, but were identified in the DRAFT TIP

  • To move projects to a different horizon year in the 2040 MTP

  • To change project extents in the 2040 MTP to match the limits in the DRAFT TIP.

The TIP is a subset of the 2040 MTP and both documents should match.

A list of the approved 2040 MTP amendments that are recommended to conform to the 2016-2025 TIP can be viewed in the map and list below:

CRTPO’s TIP is a subset of NCDOT’s STIP, and this relationship requires concurrency in public involvement efforts. The Strategic Transportation Investments legislation has created a quantitative, data-driven approach to develop the STIP, and process has limited public involvement to the local input point’s assignment process. Feedback will be targeted to the process and geographic diversity of projects in CRTPO’s TIP. FHWA requires public involvement as part of MPOs adoption of the TIP, MTP amendments, and air quality conformity determinations.

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

At the August 20,2014 CRTPO meeting, the MPO approved the final list of projects proposed for the allocation of local input points under NCDOT’s Prioritization 3.0. This represents the culmination of a nine-month process for CRTPO to develop a local input points methodology, rank the proposed projects, conduct public involvement on the proposed list of projects, and approve the final list based upon the guidelines developed by NCDOT and the STI legislation. NCDOT will calculate the final project scores by including the local input points assigned to projects, and will develop a DRAFT Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) anticipated in December of 2014.

A 30-day public comment period on CRTPO’s DRAFT list of projects proposed to receive local input points was conducted from June 19, 2014 until July 21, 2014. 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.

TIP Financial Plan

Federal regulations require Metropolitan Transportation Plans (MTPs), Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs), and Statewide Transportation Improvement Programs (STIPs) to be “fiscally constrained.” The requirement for fiscal constraint is met through the preparation of financial plans, the requirements for which are contained in the joint FTA/FHWA regulations for Statewide and Metropolitan Transportation Planning (23 CFR 450). These regulations specify that the financial plan must be fiscally constrained for the first four program years of the TIP. The CRTPO’s Financial Plan for the 2018-2021 program years can be viewed here.

Amendments and Modifications to the 2018-2027 TIP

The CRTPO is responsible for maintaining its current TIP by approving amendments and modifications to projects on a routine basis. These amendments and modifications must also be approved within NCDOT’s current STIP. The CRTPO Board approved a series of updates to its TIP Amendments and Modifications Guidelines during its meeting on October 17, 2018. The purpose of these amendments was to better align with the NCDOT’s STIP amendment guidelines. The CRTPO’s updated TIP amendment and modifications guidelines can be viewed here.
 

Amendments

Amendments to the Transportation Improvement Program must be approved by the CRTPO Board and must appear on the regular agenda as an action item. Two or more requests for amendments may be addressed by the MPO as a single agenda item.

The amendment process is required when changes:

a. cause the addition or deletion of a project;
b. cause the addition or deletion of a state-funded regionally significant project;
c. trigger the need for an air quality conformity determination;
d. shift a project across horizon years of the Metropolitan Transportation Plan;
e. Change in project cost beyond a predetermined threshold; increases in highway projects that exceed both $ 2 million and 25% of the original cost and may affect fiscal constraint and changes (increases or decreases) in transit projects that exceed either $1 million or 25% of the original project cost; result from changes in funding sources involving nontraditional funding sources; or
f. in design concept or scope significantly change the project termini or type, number of through lanes on a non-exempt project, or significantly alters the proposed transit coverage area.

Amendments to the 2018-2027 TIP can be viewed here.

Administrative Modifications

Administrative modifications to the Transportation Improvement Program can be made by the CRTPO staff. Administrative modifications must be consistent with the definition of Administrative Modification as found in 23 CFR 450.104. Changes to the TIP can be made through the administrative modification process when:

a. the project in question is not being added to or deleted from the TIP;
b. a change in project costs are below the predetermined thresholds (as noted in the Amendment section);
c. the project utilizes State or local funds only and is not deemed to be regionally significant;
d. the proposed changes are deemed to be minor changes (as determined by the TCC) to project scope or description and do not
significantly diminish the ability to achieve the original project intent; and
e. Schedule changes that move project authorization dates within the first four years of the TIP time window and do not cross MTP Horizon Years; and,
f. changes in traditional funding sources occur. This includes a revenue-neutral exchange of two different traditional funding sources between two active projects. (e.g. the exchange of Bonus Allocation and STBG-DA funding for the purpose of allowing both projects to move forward).

Administrative modifications to the 2018-2027 TIP can be viewed here. [Coming Soon]

Background

Prioritization is NCDOT’s decision making tool for developing the  Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), which is a listing of projects to be delivered within an upcoming five-year work program. The current round is known as Prioritization 4.0 (or P4.0), and will develop the 2018-2027 TIP. CRTPO is involved in the nomination of projects for scoring by NCDOT, and the application of local input points based upon its methodology.  The NCDOT-Strategic Prioritization Office of Transportation (SPOT) leads this process by providing oversight to MPOs, RPOs and Divisions throughout the state as well as scoring the projects.

Local Input Points from MPOs and NCDOT Divisions contribute to the final project scores for Regional Impact and Division Needs tier projects under P4.0 – (see STI legislation for more details). Projects with higher final scores have a greater chance of being programmed into the TIP based upon the STI legislation.
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

A nuance to P4.0 is the separation of the local input points allocation process for Regional Impact projects occurring in April through June, and Division Needs projects in August through September. This allows for jurisdictions to review draft scores and determine if the application of a local contribution is necessary to improve the final score.

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.

TIP Process

The CRTPO has begun the next stage of developing future transportation projects for Iredell, Mecklenburg, and Union Counties and is requesting resident input on potential transportation priorities. The CRTPO works closely with the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) to develop the 2020-2029 Transportation Improvement Program in a process known as Prioritization 5.0.

Prioritization is NCDOT’s decision making tool for developing the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), which is a listing of projects to be delivered within an upcoming ten-year work program. The current round is known as Prioritization 5.0 (or P5.0), and will develop the 2020-2029 TIP. CRTPO is involved in the nomination of projects for scoring by NCDOT, and the application of local input points based upon its methodology.  The NCDOT-Strategic Prioritization Office of Transportation (SPOT) leads this process by providing oversight to MPOs, RPOs and Divisions throughout the state as well as scoring the projects.

Local Input Points from MPOs and NCDOT Divisions contribute to the final project scores for Regional Impact and Division Needs tier projects under P5.0 – (see STI legislation for more details). Projects with higher final scores have a greater chance of being programmed into the TIP based upon the STI legislation.

NCDOT 2020-2029 STIP Development Process

Public Involvement is an important part of the NCDOT Prioritization 5.0 process to develop the 2020-2029 STIP. Public Engagement occurs during the project selection process, and during the Regional Impact and Division Needs local input point assignment phases.


Division Needs Local Input Points Public Comment Period

A 14-day public comment period was held between September 20, 2018 and Thursday, October 4, 2018 for the projects recommended for the CRTPO’s Division Needs local input points within the 2020-2029 TIP Development process (NCDOT Prioritization 5.0). The media release can be viewed here.

 

Members of the public can also comment on the proposed project lists during the CRTPO Board meeting on Wednesday, October 17. The CRTPO Board meeting will be held in Room 267 of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center beginning at 6 p.m. Those who wish to speak must sign up at least five minutes prior to the start of the meeting.

Regional Impact  Local Input Points Public Comment Period

A 30-day public comment period  began on Monday May 21, 2018 and concluded on Wednesday June 20, 2018 for transportation projects recommended for Regional Impact local input point assignment under NCDOT Prioritization 5.0. The media release can be viewed here.  Regional Impact highway projects consist of U.S. and North Carolina routes (i.e. US 521, NC 16, NC 49), regional transit aviation, and rail projects. The CRTPO received 201 public comments during the public comment period. A summary of public comments received during the public comment period can be viewed here.

The June 20, 2018 CRTPO meeting served as an opportunity for public comment on the projects proposed for Regional Impact local input point assignment in P5.0.  

All MPOs and NCDOT Divisions must assign their Regional Impact points to projects by July 27, 2018.   

Local Input Points define up to 30% of the quantitative scores for Regional Impact projects under NCDOT Prioritization 5.0. A separate local input point assignment public comment window will begin in September for Division Needs projects.

Project Submittal Phase:
It is important that residents provide input in during the project submittal phase within the TIP development process because the STI legislation limits project submission to MPOs, RPOs, or NCDOT Divisions. This requires residents, local governments, and other public interest groups to actively participate in the CRTPO’s public involvement period of its project submission phase to ensure that their priorities are being considered within this process. A public comment period was held from August 17, 2017 until August 31,2017 on the projects of all transportation modes that were proposed for submission for NCDOT Prioritization 5.0. A summary of public comments received can be viewed here.  The public comments were presented as part of the CRTPO board approval of the project lists during the September 20, 2017 MPO meeting.

The STI legislation requires that MPOs in North Carolina must develop an adopt a methodology for assigning its local input points as part of the NCDOT Prioritization process.

The methodology must contain two criteria (one must be qualitative) for determining project prioritization. In addition, the methodology must contain a public engagement strategy during the local input points process that is consistent with the MPO’s Public Involvement Plan.

Passed in 2013, the Strategic Transportation Investments law allows the NCDOT to use its funding more efficiently and effectively to enhance the state's infrastructure, while supporting economic growth, job creation and a higher quality of life. This process encourages thinking from a statewide and regional perspective while also providing flexibility to address local needs.
STI also establishes the Strategic Mobility Formula, which allocates available revenues based on data-driven scoring and local input. It is used to develop NCDOT's State Transportation Improvement Program, which identifies the transportation projects that will receive funding during a specified 10-year period.
