NCDOT approves 10-year transportation improvement plan

more than 1,000 state-funded transportation projects between 2016 and 2025. The projects included in STIP cover all modes of transportation, with just fewer than half being related to highway work (418 projects) and interstate maintenance (138 projects). NCDOT will also work on railroad, aviation and public transit projects over the next decade. The NCDOT board approved the plan, and has already begun NCDOT expects that the state will be able to create about 300,000 jobs based on hiring for the highway-related projects alone. Further job creation is expected for the other transportation projects. STIP is a federally mandated plan, with information about the funding and planning for North Carolina publicly available. Residents can review the upcoming improvements on an interactive state map on the NCDOT website. Although STIP is expected to begin in 2016, there is a different State Transportation Improvement Program currently in place that was planned to run through 2018. NCDOT will need to get the 2016-2025 plan approved by the Federal Highway and Federal Transit administrations in order to amend and extend the plan that is currently in place.]]>
