The Strategic Transportation Corridors policy requires the N.C. Department of Transportation to develop strategic master plans for each of the North Carolina's 25 designated corridors.
The intent of the master plans is to develop for each corridor a consistent transportation vision – based on stakeholder input and sound technical assessment – that recognizes statewide economic development objectives, advances subsequent regional planning and corridor project development activities and can serve to streamline the project development process.
NCDOT is currently working on master plans for:
- Corridor D (U.S. 321/CSX)
- Corridor P (U.S. 70 East/North Carolina Railroad)
- Corridor S (I-795/U.S. 117)
- Corridor U (U.S. 74 West/U.S. 74 East)
- Corridor X (U.S. 258/N.C. 111/U.S.13)
More information on the development of these plans is available on Connect NCDOT, the N.C. Department of Transportation's website for online collaboration and resources for business, professional and working partners.
