As the primary north-south corridor through Charlotte, the 68-mile stretch of interstate between Statesville, NC and Rock Hill, SC is essential to our community. I-77 is greater than the interstate itself. It is a network of connections that are important to moving through our region. This study identifies strategies and solutions to improve mobility for all users.
Beyond 77 is a plan created with resident input and support to address the transportation needs in our planning area. Click the link below to review the final strategies and solutions outlined in detail.
The 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan
The Metropolitan Transportation Plan, or MTP, is a plan that documents the region’s vision for the future and establishes goals, objectives, and transportation priorities over the next 20+ years to help achieve that vision. This plan considers all surface transportation modes (driving, bicycling, walking, riding transit, freight movement) while also thinking about impacts to the environment, the economy, public health, and overall quality of life. It also identifies ways to fund needed projects, prioritizes how funding is spent, and establishes metrics to measure if we are moving in the right direction.
The Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization, or CRTPO, is currently updating the MTP for the Charlotte Region, which covers all of Iredell and Mecklenburg counties and a portion of Union County. The 2050 MTP was adopted in March 2022.
CONNECT Beyond will define a bold regional transit vision and plan that provides real mobility solutions and opportunities for residents and visitors across two states and 12 counties. Reliable transportation options provide access to jobs, education, medical facilities and services, and serve as the foundation to our region’s continued economic competitiveness and quality of life.
