GHMPO - Draft TIP FY 2020-2029

In August 2019, the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) released the draft fiscal year (FY) 2020-2029 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 GHMPO received its draft supplement and began the development of the MPO’s FY2020-2029 local Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The GHMPO’s TIP 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 TIP and the STIP cover a 10-year period, with the first six years (2020-2025 in this version) referred to as the delivery program and the latter four years (2026-2029 in this version) as the developmental program.
