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, DOT representatives said.

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.
