The Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) Unit is responsible for developing the four-year, fiscally constrained, list of federally funded and regionally significant projects called the STIP.
The STIP is created through a cooperative and comprehensive process that incorporates federally required Performance Measures (PMs), the seven National Planning Goals, and aligns with the NMDOT’s Long Range Planning document to choose projects that support the vision of the Department and address the multimodal needs of New Mexico’s transportation customers. The State’s six-year transportation preservation and capital improvement program identifies multi-modal transportation projects that use Federal, State Bond, State priority, State Capital Outlay and local government transportation funds. It includes projects of regional significance (projects with high public interest or air quality impacts) and projects in the National Parks, National Forests and Indian Reservations.
