Strategic Transportation Investment Prioritization Process - 2017-18

Throughout 2017 and 2018, the Triangle Area Rural Planning Organization (TARPO), along with the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT), will go through a process to identify and prioritize transportation projects for inclusion in the state’s next Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). This process, known as “Prioritization 5.0” is directly tied to the Strategic Transportation Investments law that passed the General Assembly in 2013.

This website has been established to serve as a resource and repository of information on this project prioritization and funding process within the TARPO region. As information becomes available throughout this process, it will be added to this site to make the information widely available to the public. If you have any questions about the information on this site, please contact Matt Day, TARPO Principal Planner, at or (919)558-9397.

We welcome your comments and feedback on the prioritization of transportation projects. Please feel free to attend any of our meetings, which are all open to the public, or to write/call us. We have a time for public comment at the beginning of each RTCC and RTAC meeting. You may reach TARPO staff by email at or by phone at (919) 558-9397. You may also send written correspondence to: TARPO, Attn. Matt Day, 4307 Emperor Blvd., Suite 110, Durham, NC 27703. Additionally, you can submit comments using our online comment form, found here.
