Strategic Transportation Prioritization (SPOT)

Statewide Prioritization & Strategic Transportation Investments (STI) Law

NCDOT uses a strategic, data-driven process to develop the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The process involves scoring all roadway, public transportation, bicycle, pedestrian, rail, and aviation projects on a number of criteria. Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), Rural Planning Organizations (RPOs), and the NCDOT Divisions also contribute to the final project score by assigning local priority points to projects. For more information on the NCDOT Strategic Prioritization Process see:

The French Broad River MPO’s Role in Prioritization:

  • The MPO selects which projects from a regionally or locally adopted plan are submitted into the scoring competition.  Currently, the French Broad River MPO is permitted to submit twenty-five (25) new projects for each transportation mode in each prioritization cycle.

For more information on projects submitted by the FBRMPO and the local methodology see below:
