[ARCHIVED] Local Input on NCDOT Division Needs Transportation Projects

The Gaston-Cleveland-Lincoln Metropolitan Planning Organization (GCLMPO) is requesting public input on the next stage of developing future Division Needs transportation projects for Gaston, Cleveland, and Lincoln Counties.

The Gaston-Cleveland-Lincoln Metropolitan Planning Organization (GCLMPO) is requesting public input on the next stage of developing future Division Needs transportation projects for Gaston, Cleveland, and Lincoln Counties. The process to develop the GCLMPO’s 2020-2029 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is administered by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) and is called “Prioritization 5.0” or “P5.0”.

Both highway projects and non-highway projects (bicycle and pedestrian, aviation and public transportation) are represented on the draft list and map proposed for Division Needs local input point assignments, and can be found on the GCLMPO website at www.gclmpo.org.

NCDOT has scored projects submitted by MPOs, Rural Planning Organizations (RPOs) and NCDOT Divisions according to formulas established under the Strategic Transportation Investments (STI) law. GCLMPO has 1,800 local input points to allocate to projects for local prioritization in the Division Needs tier. The STI legislation specifies that MPOs, RPOs and NCDOT Division offices must adhere to their adopted local input point methodologies to the greatest extent possible when assigning local input points. GCLMPO’s adopted Local Input Point Methodology for P5.0 can also be found on the website.
