The N.C. Department of Transportation has released a final draft of the 2020-2029 State Transportation Improvement Plan, or STIP. It includes more than 1,700 projects across all transportation modes and in all 100 counties. "The overall statewide list includes 1,319 highway projects, 86 aviation, 234 bike and pedestrian, six ferry, 23 public transit and 50 rail projects selected on statewide, regional and division levels," a news release said. "The projects were prioritized based on technical data as well as input from local officials and residents." The N.C. Board of Transportation may give it final approval in September.
