PROJECT FUNDING AND PRIORITIZATION
Strategic Transportation Investments Prioritization Process
The Burlington – Graham Metropolitan Planning Organization (BGMPO) is in the process of developing and prioritizing transportation improvements for inclusion in the 2029 – 2032 Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). This process, commonly known as “Prioritization 6.0” is based on the Strategic Transportation Investments law that passed the NC General Assembly in 2013. North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) Strategic Prioritization Process is a data-driven, transparent method for prioritizing transportation projects and is used to develop the State Transportation Improvement Program which identify the projects that will be funded during a 10-year period. BGMPO Prioritization 6.0 Project List can be found here and map of highway and bicycle and pedestrian projects can be found here. These projects have been submitted for further evaluation under the NCDOT P6.0 Scoring Process. Prioritization scores all roadway, public transportation, bicycle & pedestrian, rail, ferry, and aviation projects based upon approved criteria. As information becomes available throughout the BGMPO prioritization process, it will be added to this website to make the information widely available to the public.
