Brunswick County Comprehensive Transportation Plan

Brunswick County, it's municipalities, Cape Fear Rural Planning Organization, GSATS Metropolitan Planning Organization, and NCDOT created a steering committee to start the Brunswick County Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP). The CTP is a 25-30 year long range, multi-modal transportation plan, that will assess Brunswick County's existing and future transportation needs, including roadways, bicycle, pedestrian, transit, and rail facilities and services.  The steering committee is comprised of members from each adopting agency, as well as other local representatives, and have been meeting since early 2021 to create this plan.

The goals of a CTP are to identify transportation deficiencies, set short and long-term transportation priorities, establish a relationship between local and regional expectations, and to reinforce and support other local and regional planning and funding initiatives. 

The public survey that was available from March, 2021 through June, 2021 brought in a total of 6,969 responses, with a total of 8,387 comments. This is the most feedback the Transportation Planning Division at NCDOT has ever gathered for a single county CTP! Thank you to everyone who responded!!

The Core Content Package of the CTP is currently under review by the steering committee, internal NCDOT transportation Planning Division staff, and management. Once the review process is complete, the steering committee will host both in-person and virtual public involvement sessions. We anticipate the public involvement sessions to begin early Spring, 2022. Once public involvement sessions are scheduled, we will announce them on the website, and post the schedules at City Hall.
