Starting today, Transportation officials are making available the five-year blueprint for how money will be spent on roads and bridges in the state. The plan is known as the STIP, or Statewide Transportation Improvement Program. Transportation planning director Kyle Kittrell says the Department will gradually increase the amount of money spent on maintenance until at the end of the five-year period $400-Million a year will be spent on keeping up roads and bridges. Public comment continues through mid-June. Highway commissioners will consider the public’s comments at their July meeting.
