NCDOT wants public input on transportation’s future

RALEIGH The N.C. Department of Transportation wants the public to help influence the future of transportation in North Carolina.

From now until Nov. 30, residents can participate in an online survey and leave comments on an interactive map about the future transportation challenges across North Carolina and what should be the future focus of transportation in their regions.

Examples include:

  • Safety
  • Better connections to key destinations
  • Better connections to jobs
  • Better transit
  • Better bicycle and pedestrian accommodations

Links to both the survey and interactive map are available at www.ncdot.gov/ncmoves.

NCDOT will use the feedback to help shape the vision and goals for its next long-range transportation plan, called NC Moves 2050.

NC Moves 2050 is NCDOT’s 30-year transportation blueprint focused on creating a more responsive, diverse and inclusive transportation system to keep people and freight moving safely and efficiently across the state.

The survey is the first of several opportunities for public involvement over the course of the two-year comprehensive study to develop the transportation plan.

    Young people want to live in high rise apartments in the cities but as soon as they have kids they want to move to homes with trees and grass and yards for their kids to run around in. So we need better and wider roads to support these families. Too much money spent on high rise buildings in the cities that then requires move long commutes. Build more corporate parks in the suburbs so commutes are shorter.
