In December 2014, the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) released the draft fiscal year (FY) 2016-2025 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The NCDOT provided each MPO a draft supplement of the STIP that contained projects in their respective MPO area. The DCHC MPO received its draft supplement and began the development of the MPO’s FY2016-2025 Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP). The DCHC MPO’s MTIP is a subset of the State of North Carolina’s STIP which denotes the scheduling and funding of construction projects located across the state over a minimum four-year time period as required by State and Federal laws. Both the MTIP and the STIP cover a 10-year period, with the first five years (2016-2020 in this version) referred to as the delivery program and the latter five years (2021-2025 in this version) as the developmental program. The FY2016-2025 MTIP and STIP are the first to be developed under the new Strategic Transportation Investments (STI) law passed in June 2013.
Both the MTIP and the STIP are updated every two years and developed in concert with federal and state revenue forecasts, North Carolina Department of Transportation’s (NCDOT’s) Strategic Prioritization process, preconstruction and project development timetables, and in adherence with federal and state laws. More information about the MPO’s priorities and the Strategic Prioritization Process can be found under Transportation Priorities for 2016-2025.
On June 4, 2015, the NCDOT Board of Transportation approved the FY2016-2025 STIP. The FY2016-2025 STIP will be in effect starting October 1, 2015. The entire FY2016-2025 STIP is available as an electronic PDF for review using this link: NCDOT Adopted FY2016-2025 STIP. The DCHC MPO area Supplement to the FY2016-2025 STIP is available as an electronic PDF for review using this link: NCDOT Adopted FY2016-2025 STIP Supplement.
The DCHC MPO LPA staff prepared the MPO’s draft FY2016-2025 MTIP in the spring 2015. The MPO Technical Committee and MPO Board reviewed the draft FY2016-2025 MTIP and on June 10, 2015, the MPO Board released the draft MTIP for public review and comment. Public comments were received between June 10, 2015 and July 31, 2015. On August 12, 2015, the MPO Board held a public hearing for the draft FY2016-2025 MTIP. On August 26, 2015, the MPO Technical Committee reviewed all public comments received and recommended that the MPO Board adopt the FY2016-2025 MTIP.
On September 9, 2015, the MPO Board unanimously voted to adopt the FY2016-2025 MTIP. The adopted FY2016-2025 MTIP is available below.
