Department of Transportation


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 Transportation Capital Program for Fiscal Year 2024, which began July 1, 2023.

A companion document, the Statewide Capital Investment Strategy for Fiscal Years 2023 - 2032, 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 2024 through 2033.

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.
