Capital Program Documents
The New Jersey Department of Transportation allocates funds to projects and programs through two main capital program documents:
the Transportation Capital Program and the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program.
The Transportation Capital Program is a document required by State law. This program allocates State and federal transportation
funding for the period of one state fiscal year (July 1 through June 30) for both the New Jersey Department of Transportation
and the New Jersey Transit Corporation. It also includes funds that are allocated to counties and municipalities. The current
document is the Proposed Transportation Capital Program for Fiscal Year 2014, which
will begin July 1, 2013.
A companion document, the
Statewide Capital Investment Strategy for Fiscal Years 2014 - 2023, lays out capital
investment goals for, New Jersey Department of Transportation, New Jersey Transit, Turnpike Authority, and South Jersey
Transportation Authority. While the Capital Program details the projects to be funded during the next fiscal year, the Capital
Investment Strategy discusses the goals and longer-term strategy behind those project choices.
The Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) is required by federal law. Although a four-year constrained plan is
required by federal law, the New Jersey Department of Transportation and New Jersey Transit are allocating funding over a
ten-year period and constraining the plan to what are reasonable revenue expectations. Like the Transportation Capital Program,
the STIP includes both State and federal funding and includes projects and programs of the New Jersey Department of
Transportation, New Jersey Transit, and the counties and municipalities. The STIP is compiled from three regional
Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs), which are developed in conjunction with New Jersey's three metropolitan planning
organizations (MPO). Each MPO has extensive public involvement activities in preparation for the TIP. The current document is
the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for the State of New
Jersey for Fiscal Years 2012 through 2021.
The Draft FY 2014-2023 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) is an expansion of the FY 2014 Capital Program that was submitted to State Legislature in March 2013. The STIP is subject to a
30 day public comment period and final negotiations with the three Metropolitan Planning Organizations, the Federal Highway
Administration, and the Federal Transit Administration. The STIP public comment period runs concurrently with each MPO TIP
public comment period. Comments can be submitted through the MPO links listed below. All negotiated changes become part of
the final federally-approved STIP document to be effective on October 1, 2013.
To view modifications and amendments to the STIP, NJDOT has launched the
Electronic Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (e-STIP). This
system allows any user to view all approved changes to the STIP since initial approval by FHWA and FTA.
