North Carolina's Strategic Transportation Corridors
form the state’s core network of multimodal transportation passageways.
Combined, these 25 corridors move large volumes of people and freight across the
regions of the state and to key markets outside of the state.
The transportation facilities and services within
the corridors connect centers of economic activity considered to be of
statewide and regional significance.
Preserving these facilities and services, in terms
of their physical condition and quality of the service they provide,
supports North Carolina’s goals for economic development and will guide
long-term planning at statewide, regional and corridor levels. These
strategic corridors are considered the state’s highest priority when
analyzed within the framework of regional or local transportation plans.
The N.C. Department of Transportation's vision is
for North Carolina to have an identified network of high-priority
transportation corridors that integrate all modes and connect statewide
and regional transportation- dependent activity centers, to enhance
economic development, to promote highly reliable and efficient mobility
and to support good decision-making.
