Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP)

2014-2017 STIP-Approved

The 2014-2017 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) was approved in January 2014 as required per the Federal Transportation Act. Approximately 1,000 statewide transportation improvement projects utilizing $1.8 billion in federal funds are in the 2014-17 STIP statewide, representing Washington’s highest priority projects.

2014-2017 STIP is now available electronically. Using this database you will be able to locate projects by agency, MPO/RTPO (pdf 150 kb), amendment number, or by PIN number (WSDOT).



The STIP includes projects such as pavement overlays, roadway widening, bridge replacement or repair, signal systems, safety enhancements, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and transit improvements. WSDOT developed the list in coordination with statewide metropolitan and rural transportation planning organizations to ensure that the proposed projects are consistent with local, regional and state plans.

Projects included in the STIP are funded by a combination of federal, state and local sources. Federal-aid projects must be included in the STIP before Federal Highway Administration or Federal Transit Administration can authorize the expenditure of federal funds.

Web-Based STIP

STIP Training Manual (pdf 4.5mb)

The web based system allows local agencies to input their projects online once, for both the 6-year TIP and STIP. Local agencies will then submit their projects electronically to their respective Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) or Regional Transportation Planning Organization (RTPO).

STIP Amendment Due Dates

The STIP amendment schedule provides consistency for WSDOT regions and MPOs to submit projects for inclusion into the STIP. Local agencies and regional WSDOT Program Management personnel need to be aware of MPO timelines where applicable and work together to meet critical dates.
