Moore County Transportation Plan


The Moore County Comprehensive Transportation Plan is a long-range, multimodal 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 will use 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.

Draft Comprehensive Transportation Plan

On Nov. 15, 2017, the Moore County Transportation Committee finalized a draft list of proposals that will be presented to the public in seven countywide meetings in early 2018.

2018 Public Meetings

The Moore County Transportation Committee has announced the following public meetings in April to present the draft Comprehensive Transportation Plan and seek input.

The same information will be presented at all drop-in meetings. This short video explains the CTP and its importance.

The CTP includes proposed projects to cover transportation needs and meet growing traffic challenges through 2040 across Moore County. Officials anticipate local governing boards will vote on adopting the CTP by summer 2018. The meeting schedule is listed below.
