Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP)
Each State is required, under 49 U.S.C. 5304(g) , to develop a statewide transportation improvement program (STIP) for all areas of the State, covering a period of at least four years. The STIP is a staged, multi-year, statewide intermodal program of transportation projects, consistent with the statewide transportation plan and planning processes as well as metropolitan plans, transportation improvement programs (TIP), and planning processes. The STIP must be developed in cooperation with the metropolitan planning organizations (MPO), public transit providers, and any Regional Transportation Planning Organizations (RTPO) in the State, and must be compatible with the TIPs for the metropolitan areas in the State.
