LOSRPO Prioritization

The NCDOT’s Strategic Planning Office of Transportation (SPOT) has been tasked with carrying out the project evaluation process outlined in the SL 2013-84 legislation enacted on June 26, 2013. One of the most significant tasks that must be accomplished by each MPO/RPO and NCDOT Division Office is to create a methodology that explains how the MPO/RPO/Division Office will allocate the eligible local input points assigned to projects (of all modes) in the prioritization database.

As stipulated by the STI legislation, local points may be assigned to projects in the Regional Impact and Division Needs categories, but not the Statewide Mobility category. The Land of Sky Rural Planning Organization (LOSRPO) may allocate the following number of local points for projects in the eligible categories:

  • 1100 points – Regional Impact projects
  • 1100 points – Division Needs projects

A committee of TCC members was created to develop a local input point methodology. The contents of this memorandum describe the methodology developed by the committee, which the LOSRPO proposes to use to allocate its local input points. NCDOT requires that the methodology include the following components:

  • A minimum of one quantitative criteria
  • A minimum of one qualitative criteria
  • Public involvement (on the proposed methodology, and the preliminary assignment of local input points to projects based on the approved methodology) (on both methodology and preliminary assignment of points to projects based on the methodology
  • Dissemination of methodology, local points and public input on LOSRPO’s website (www.landofskyrpo.org)

A Little Time On These Surveys Will Influence Transportation Projects For Years To Come

Thanks for your interest in transportation project public input. Take any or all surveys below for counties that you live in or travel trough regularly. The projects in each survey are merely proposed, not promised, but your opinions will figure into a scoring process that makes them more or less likely to become funded. Likewise, the descriptions and images associated with each project are just guidelines. The planned projects will be shaped by transportation engineers, physical restraints of terrain and property, costs, and further public input.

You’re encouraged to weigh in on the projects that are most relevant to you. Feel free to skip any project that you don’t care about, jump right to the projects that you care most about, and quit a survey at any time. We appreciate any amount of effort and every opinion that you care to offer. THANKS!

Surveys are now closed!
