The Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, known as the STIP, is Oregon’s four-year transportation capital improvement program. It is the document that identifies the funding for, and scheduling of, transportation projects and programs. It includes projects on the federal, state, city, and county transportation systems, multimodal projects (highway, passenger rail, freight, public transit, bicycle and pedestrian), and projects in the National Parks, National Forests, and Indian tribal lands.
The STIP is a major activity of ODOT and is shared among various work units of the agency. The Planning Section’s role is in working with statewide stakeholders and staff to develop the overall project selection process that all Regions will use, including developing the Enhance and Fix-It process and the Enhance application for the 2015-2018 STIP. The Active Transportation Section takes care of all the technical, statewide aspects of the STIP including assigning and monitoring funding, recording project changes, and creating and maintaining the STIP document online. Region staff then assign and monitor their area’s funding, shepherd the project selection process, ensure public involvement in the STIP process, and manage project development and delivery.
These pages will tell you about the statewide STIP and STIP development process. You should see the appropriate ODOT Region website for any questions about activities or particular projects in your Region.
