  • What is a statewide transportation plan?
    A statewide transportation plan establishes a long-term transportation vision for a state and an outline with specific goals and strategies for how that vision will be achieved. The plan takes into consideration current and future growth, funding and technologies to develop a transportation plan that will be efficient and reliable.

    N.C. Moves 2050 is North Carolina’s update to the existing statewide transportation plan, called the 2040 plan.
  • What is the N.C. Moves 2050 planning process?
    The N.C. Moves planning process involves a two-year study that includes:
    • A multimodal evaluation of North Carolina’s current transportation system
    • The identification of drivers and opportunities that might have an impact on transportation
    • Technical analysis and conversations with citizens and leaders around the unique needs, tradeoffs, priorities and solutions for North Carolina
    • An implementation plan to guide the state in decision-making around transportation policy and infrastructure investment
  • What types of transportation are part of the NC Moves 2050 Plan?

  • How does NC Moves 2050 fit with transportation plans completed by other planning organizations?

    ​The North Carolina statewide transportation plan provides a vision for the future of transportation across the state.

NCDOT works with these planning organizations to ensure their transportation planning efforts are reflective of the recommendations set by NC Moves 2050. 

  • Is there funding for all the recommendations?

    ​NC Moves 2050 does not allocate specific funding amounts to the recommendations but does include a needs and revenue assessment for how NCDOT’s funding sources may be impacted in the future and estimates the amount of funding that will be available to meet transportation needs through to the year 2050. ​
