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.
Public meeting dates will be announced soon.

These maps show the additional growth anticipated from 2010-2040 in each area of the county. The growth numbers, based on the 2013 Moore County Land Use Plan, were developed and adopted locally.
