NCDOT Adopts 2024-2033 STIP
The NCDOT has demonstrated fiscal constraint on the 2024-2033 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) adopted on June 6, 2023. The CRTPO’s 2024-2033 TIP is a subset of the STIP and by extension therefore demonstrates fiscal constraint. The fiscal constraint funding summary for the 2024-2027 program years of the CRTPO’s TIP can be viewed here.
The CRTPO held two public comment periods to receive input on the 2024-2033 Draft Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), amendments to the 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), and the air quality conformity determination report for the MTP & TIP. CRTPO staff received four comments. Comments and staff responses are available on the public comment log here.
The CRTPO adopted the 2024-2033 TIP, the 2050 MTP amendments, and an air quality conformity determination at the June 21, 2023 Board meeting.

NCDOT project schedule delays are due to swaps, delivery schedule changes, and STIP balancing to ensure fiscal constraint is met.

Strategic Transportation Investment Legislation
Passed in 2013, the Strategic Transportation Investments (STI) 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 (STIP), which identifies the transportation projects that will receive funding during a specified 10-year period.
2024-2033 STIP Development Process
The 2024-2033 STIP is being developed using existing projects from the currently adopted 2020-2029 STIP. The development process followed a three step process.
Step 1 – Start from scratch – build next STIP from existing 2020-2029 STIP funded projects (no new P6 evaluated projects)
Step 2 – Develop list of “Delivery projects” – first funded based on upcoming let dates, right-of-way purchases, and grants
Step 3 – Determine which of the remaining 2020-2029 funded projects remain in STIP: Seniority Approach (P3-P4-P5)
