NC Moves 2050 Survey

The vision of NC Moves 2050 will reflect NCDOT’s focus on policy-based solutions rather than specific projects. This means instead of making decisions like “building a bike lane on Main Street,” we would look to “provide support for local bicycle projects.”

There are five objectives that support the vision of NC Moves 2050. Each objective is based on research of existing transportation plans and future needs. They reflect the feedback of residents, stakeholders, partners, NCDOT staff and subject matter experts.

Under each of the five objectives, NCDOT has proposed several actions aimed to address the expected needs from today through 2050. The NC Moves 2050 team needs your feedback on which actions are most important to you and your community. Please select your top three actions under each objective. You can also add a suggestion for an action.
