Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP)
The Ohio Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) is the State’s four-year transportation planning document that lists all federally funded and regionally significant state funded projects expected to be funded in those four years. The Ohio Department of Transportation, Office of Systems Planning and Program Management, develops this document 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 the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The STIP is scheduled to be updated every two years and is revised on a quarterly basis to reflect the latest program and project information. The 2014-2017 STIP is the current STIP as approved by FHWA and FTA on July 1, 2013.
The STIP has been made viewable in two separate sections:
The Narrative (which includes the original carry forward list) and
The Project List (which includes the most recent amendments and modifications as of November 1, 2013).
