State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP)

What is the STIP?


The STIP is a federally required document that lists each state's four year transportation improvement program.  The fiscal year (FY) begins October 1st and ends September 30th of the following year.  The STIP includes all state and local transportation projects that use federal highway and/or federal transit funding as well as transporation projects that use only state funds.  STIPS are developed on an annual basis and are updated throughout the year to reflect significant changes to the program.  The approved four-year program is financially constrained based on project federal funding levels provided by the FAST (Fixing America's Surface Transportation) Act.  

Because Metro COG is a bi-state Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), the Metro COG TIP is incorportated into North Dakota's and Minnesota's STIPs by reference.  Below, are links to resources regarding the North Dakota and Minnesota STIPs.
