Welcome to the NJTPA Online Transportation Information System (NOTIS). The system is an interactive tool that allows you to explore how your state and federal tax dollars are being invested to improve the transportation system in the 13-county northern New Jersey region. You can use NOTIS to answer questions such as:
- Is there a project scheduled or under study to address
the congestion on the highway I drive to work?
- What transportation projects are planned near my hometown?
- What are the transportation projects slated for my county?
- How much will that new overpass cost and when can I expect it to be completed?
- Is the feasibility of building a new rail line to my hometown being studied?
NOTIS allows you to get answers to these and a host of other questions through either a text- or map-based interface. To begin using NOTIS go here.
The map-based interface shows you project locations on an interactive map that lets you zoom in and select projects, while the text-based interface lets you look for projects in specific counties and/or on particular roadways and municipalities. If you already know the project number, use the text-based interface to find information about it quickly.
More detailed information about the project development and funding process can be found on the NJTPA Projects & Programs webpage.
What You Need to Know
Each year over $2 billion in state and federal funding is invested in transportation projects and programs in the northern New Jersey region. Funded projects accomplish a wide range of infrastructure improvements including redesigned intersections, repaved roads, new bicycle/pedestrian paths, added trains and buses, rehabilitated bridges and upgraded traffic signals. NOTIS provides information on projects at two stages:
Committed Projects - Projects for which planning has been completed. They are in the NJTPA Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and are scheduled for final design, engineering or construction during the next three years.
Planned Projects - These projects are still undergoing study and may or may not ultimately be implemented. These projects are included in the NJTPA Project Development Work Program (PDWP). If they are found feasible, they become eligible for inclusion in the TIP.
Projects at both these stages originate from the NJTPA's long-range Regional Transportation Plan. More information on the projects included in NOTIS can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions. A few other essential points about NOTIS:
- Counties and municipalities also fund and construct transportation projects in the region. NOTIS does not include information on these projects.
- State and federal transportation funding is also used for various transportation " programs" (as opposed to "projects"). Programs typically involve ongoing activities such as snow removal, bridge painting, maintenance of railroad tracks, etc. Programs are not reported in NOTIS.
- Project schedules and funding are subject to change based on unexpected problems, funding shortfalls and changing needs. NOTIS is updated monthly to include the most current NJDOT data on project status.
