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. 

SPOT Online Safety Project Map

The NCDOT Traffic Safety Division recently made available to the public an ArcGIS online map that contains mapped spot safety project data from 2019 forward.  The map will be updated every quarter after new projects are selected.Please use this link  https://arcg.is/1GzfGj0 to access the new ArcGIS Online map containing SPOT Safety projects.

2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan

The BGMPO is responsible for maintaining and updating the MTP for its entire planning area which includes Alamance County and portions of Guilford and Orange Counties. The MTP outlines the MPO’s goals and objectives and addresses transportation related issues and impacts over a minimum 20-year horizon. The MTP is a federally mandated plan and complies with the Statewide and Metropolitan Transportation Planning regulations issued by the US Department of Transportation. The MTP is updated every five years, allowing BGMPO the opportunity to incorporate the most recent data, identify any changes in factors affecting travel demand, and modify policies, programs, and projects based on current conditions. This is an ongoing process, but the MTP update provides a platform for sharing updated information and ensures compliance with federal regulations in order to continue receiving federal funds to address the needs of the region. The 2045 MTP was adopted on June 16, 2020 after going through the public review process. View the Final Report and supporting documents

Triangle Region Air Quality Conformity

Air quality transportation conformity is required by the Clean Air Act (section 176(c) (42 U.S.C. 7506(c)) to ensure that federal funding and approval for transportation projects within the BGMPO urban area are consistent with the air quality goals established by the State Implementation Plan (SIP) and included in the BGMPO Metropolitan Transportation Plan and Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program.  The BGMPO’s adopted Transportation Conformity Determination Report for the 2020-2029 Transportation Improvement Program documents this conformity and can be found here .
