CTP Report

CTP Report

The CTP Report was developed in early 2020 to enhance CRTPO’s consistency with the state’s CTP planning process. The report is intended to serve two purposes:

First, it provides documentation and support for the multi‐modal transportation network assessment identified in the adopted CTP maps. This documentation and support will inform project development and funding at the state (MTP, STI) & local (discretionary funding) levels.

Secondly, the CTP serves as NCDOT’s primary reference for Complete Streets‐eligible facilities, as required by NCDOT’s Complete Streets policy, adopted August 8, 2019. Local multi‐modal facility recommendations, included by reference within the text of this document, inform NCDOT’s Integrated Mobility Division, Transportation Planning Division, and appropriate Division Engineers, of locally adopted transportation network intent and design.

CTP Map

The CTP is a mutually adopted legal document between the state and the CRTPO. The adoption of the CTP is the State’s concurrence with the locally identified transportation needs.  The Comprehensive Transportation Plan maps were adopted by the CRTPO in January of 2017.

CRTPO received proposed amendments from its member jurisdictions. A public comment period was open from September 19 through October 18, 2019 for community input on the proposals. The CRTPO Board adopted the amendments in January 2020. Various versions of the maps are shown below.

Virtual CTP Map

The virtual CTP map will allow you to explore each of the Highway, Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Public Transportation & Rail modes, as well as pending and approved amendments to the CTP since its original adoption.

The CTP includes four maps that illustrate how communities assess and envision their future transportation network. 
  1. Highway/Street Map
    Describes and assesses the transportation network for motor vehicles (not including local and subdivision streets) 
  2. Pedestrian Map
    Describes and assesses the network for sidewalks and trails
  3. Bicycle Map
    Describes and assesses the network for bicycle lanes and trails
  4. Public Transportation and Rail Map
    Describes and assesses the public transportation and freight rail networks 

Existing

The existing facility is not expected to change. The facility may be considered adequate based on a variety of factors such as appropriate design, expected future traffic volumes, consistency with adopted plans, or livability objectives. The facility may also be considered adequate based on its context within the larger transportation network or because it is unbuildable due to physical constraints.

Needs Improvement

The existing facility or service is (or is expected to be) inadequate and should be changed to accommodate expected traffic volumes, improve inadequate design or identified safety issues, reflect pedestrian and bicycle facilities shown in adopted plans, improve poorly designed facilities, or fill in connectivity gaps.

There are no existing facilities or services and a new facility or service is needed.

Transportation segments are classified by facility types. The facility types for each mode are listed as:

Highway

  • Freeways
  • Expressways
  • Boulevards
  • Other Major Thoroughfares
  • Minor Thoroughfares
  • Interchanges
  • Grade Separations
  • Interchanges with Managed Lanes Access

Bicycle

  • On-road
  • Multi-Use Paths
  • Interchanges
  • Grade Separations
  • Interchanges with Managed Lanes Access

Pedestrian

  • Sidewalks
  • Multi-Use Paths
  • Interchanges
  • Grade Separations
  • Interchanges with Managed Lanes Access

Public Transportation

  • Fixed Guideway
  • Stations
  • Rail Corridor
  • High Speed Rail Corridor
  • Operational Strategies
  • Stations with Park & Ride Lot
  • Bus Park & Ride Lot
  • Intermodal Corridor
  • Interchanges
  • Grade Separations
  • Interchanges with Managed Lanes Access

PDF Maps

The PDF CTP maps are the officially adopted maps by CRTPO and the NCDOT Board of Transportation. Printable PDF versions of the adopted maps are available in each ‘panel’ of the PDF map.
