The Statewide Transportation
Improvement Program (STIP) is a Federally-required Capital Improvements
Program for Statewide Transportation Modernization Projects. It
must include all Federally-funded projects and all
regionally significant projects and covers a 4 year construction
period. Updated every 2 years, NWACT is currently reviewing projects
for the 2010--2013 funding cycle. While a recommendation by NWACT does
not guarantee funding, it is the first step toward securing funding for
a modernization project. NWACT’s recommendations are forwarded along
with recommendations from other Area Commissions around the State.
Final project selection for the 2010-2013 cycle is made by the
Oregon Transportation Commission and the Federal Highway Administration
in late 2009.
