The Moore County Comprehensive Transportation Plan is a long-range, multi-modal vision covering all aspects of the county's transportation needs through 2040.
Created cooperatively between the N.C. Department of Transportation, Moore County and local and regional planning agencies, the transportation plan emphasizes the local land development plan as well as statewide goals – including public safety and mobility – and local priorities, such as economic development, improving existing corridors and preserving natural areas.
Early stages of this process identified five focus areas:
- U.S. 1
- West End
- Western Connector (N.C. 5)
- N.C. 24/27 in Carthage
- N.C. 24/27 in Cameron
The Moore County Transportation Committee has used the concepts, as well as public feedback, to make final recommendations about the area's transportation infrastructure. The final recommendations will need to be locally approved, funded and evaluated under a federal process to determine the final design details and location.
