Statewide Transportation Improvement Program
What is the STIP?
The Ohio Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, or STIP, is the State’s four-year transportation planning document. It serves two main purposes. First, it presents the fiscally balanced, multimodal transportation program for the state of Ohio which includes both federally and state funded projects scheduled for some phase of implementation within the four year period. Second, it serves as the reference document required by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for use in approving federal funds for transportation projects in Ohio.
Who develops the STIP?
The Ohio Department of Transportation, Office of Systems Planning and Program Management, develops the STIP in cooperation with the Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) and in consultation with the Rural Planning Organizations and Non-Metropolitan local officials. The STIP begins as a compilation of the MPOs regional Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs) and evolves into a comprehensive list of all highway and transit projects that are federally funded. The STIP is approved jointly by FHWA and FTA.
When is the STIP updated?
The Ohio STIP is scheduled to be updated every two years and is revised on a quarterly basis to reflect the latest program and project information.
What is the current STIP?
The 2014-2017 STIP is the current STIP as approved by FHWA and FTA on July 1, 2013. It covers projects and phases of projects scheduled for some phase of implementation during the state fiscal years of 2014 through 2017.
