State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) 2022-2031

Rhode Island State Building

The STIP is a list of transportation projects the State of Rhode Island intends to implement using United States Department of Transportation funds. For a transportation project to utilize federal funds it must be included in the STIP.

Federal regulations require that the State Planning Council, acting as the single statewide Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) in Rhode Island, adopt a new STIP at a minimum of every four (4) years. The Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2022-2031 Rhode Island State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) was adopted by the State Planning Council on September 9, 2021. It covers the required four-year revenue constrained time period of Federal Fiscal Years FFY 2022-2025, with additional information included for FFY 2026-2031.

A project’s inclusion in the STIP is a critical step, but it does not represent an allocation of funds, obligation to fund, or grant of funds. Projects supported with federal dollars are only guaranteed funding after the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) or the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) or the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) reviews the design, financing, and environmental impacts of a project.

The STIP’s program of capital projects can be viewed at the online Rhode Island STIP Mapping Application. The STIP Mapping Application contains a “search by address or location” function that can zoom down to a specific address or up to the municipal level for a listing of projects within that municipality.
