Projects In Development

About Projects In Development
Planning and/or design is underway for these projects. They are generally less than 10 years from right-of-way acquisition or construction. Planning includes examining multiple alternatives and analyzing environmental effects.

Not every project in development will receive funding for right of way or construction. However, planning studies indicate NCDOT is seriously considering implementing the project.

Southeast Corridor in N.C.
Southeast Corridor in N.C. STIP Number:None
Connecting Charlotte and Raleigh to Richmond, Va., Washington, D.C, and the Northeast by rail via the federally designated Southeast Corridor improves safety, mobility and connectivity for rail passengers and freight in the Southeastern United States and provides alternatives to highway congestion on I-85 and I-95.

Long-Range Studies

About Long-Range Studies
These are advanced planning studies that guide NCDOT's decision-making process and future improvements along a corridor or section of roadway. Projects resulting from these studies are generally at least 10 years or more from construction.

Long-range studies can help NCDOT determine which projects should be funded in the future. Even if a project has been the subject of a long-range study, planning studies must still be done before the project can be implemented.
