Strategic Transportation Investments (STI) and the UCPRPO Prioritization Process Information - P5


Governor McCrory and the N.C. Department of Transportation are committed to improving the quality of life for citizens in North Carolina. Together, we want to find more efficient ways to better connect all North Carolinians - to jobs, health care, education and recreational experiences. The Strategic Transportation Investments bill (HB817), which was signed into law on June 26, 2013, will help make that possible by better leveraging existing funds to enhance the state’s infrastructure, providing greater opportunity for economic growth.

One of the core duties of any RPO or MPO is the identification and prioritization of projects for consideration in the North Carolina Department of Transportation's Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The State's TIP document is a summary of the transportation projects across all modes that are either underway, in the project development process, or planned for implementation in the next 10 years.

Here you will find information about how the UCPRPO is implementing the prioritization process. This site will be updated during the process with vital information so book mark this page for future reference.

Previous SPOT P 3.0 Prioritization information below:

After two public meetings, TCC/TAC project prioritzing, and a 30 day public comment period the TAC adopted the final UCPRPO STI P3 Point Allocation at the joint TCC/TAC meeting held on July 23, 2014. With unanoumous approval by the TAC, there were two modifications made to the prioritizing rankings. These modifications are:

1. At the Division Level, project H090895 was changed to H141891 at the Wilson's Mills Elementary School. H141891 is essentially the same project but is longer to allow for the necessary "tapering" that would be required to add the addtional center turnning lane in front of the school.

2. At the Division Level, project H090895 Noble St in Johnston County was replaced with project H141891 US 70 due to the change in the data score for safety and due to public comments at the public meetings and TCC/TAC member supoort for the project.

The final adopted point allocations may be viewed here:
