The Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) is a list of all projects, or project phases, in New York State proposed for Federal funding under Title 23 U.S.C. and 49 U.S.C. Chapter 53 that are scheduled to begin in the four federal fiscal years 2011-2014 (between October 1, 2010 and September 30, 2014). This time frame is mandated by regulations promulgated under federal law in Title 23 United State Code Section 135. The most recent STIP for New York State was formally approved on September 30, 2011.
In December 2011, Governor Cuomo outlined a comprehensive plan through “New York Works” to implement a new economic development strategy for the State. This strategy included a $1.2 billion plan to advance signature transportation projects and two statewide transportation preservation programs: an Accelerated Pavement Preservation Program, which will preserve more than 2,000 lane miles of roads with low cost preservation treatments; and an Accelerated Bridge Program to rehabilitate over 100 Bridge Decks. These programs will create thousands of construction jobs across the State.
