INDIANAPOLIS - The Indiana Department of Transportation wants to know what you think about the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program. The STIP is a federally-mandated funding and scheduling document for surface transportation projects in Indiana over a four-year period. Projects include pavement, bridges, safety projects, congestion, mobility and emergency response. It also includes information on pedestrian trails, transit and bicycle facilities. 

States are required to update STIP's every two years, with the current STIP covering fiscal years 2020-2024. Public open houses have been scheduled by INDOT to accept comment and raise awareness of the plan.
