Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) Year: 2008

The Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) is North Carolina’s multi-modal transportation plan. The CTP represents a community’s consensus on the future transportation system (including the existing system and improvements) needed to support anticipated growth and development over a 25-30 year timeframe. When a CTP is adopted by NCDOT, it represents the state’s concurrence with the identified transportation needs and proposed recommendations.

  • Improved non-motorized planning and facilities (sidewalks, crosswalks and bike lanes)
  • Incentives to use alternative modes and reduce driving
  • Parking and Land Use management
  • Universal Design (transport systems that accommodate all users)
