Opinions Needed for 2040 State Transportation Plan
Posted on Monday April 16, 2012

The 2040 Plan focuses on the policies and programs that are needed to enhance safety, improve mobility and reduce congestion for North Carolinians, as well as addresses all types (modes) of transportation for which NCDOT has responsibility: highways, aviation, ferries, rail, bicycling, walking, ports and public transit.

Key Goals of the 2040 Plan:

  • Establish a clear understanding of the challenges that will affect transportation in the future.
  • Update prior projections of future transportation funding needs and compare those needs to expected revenues to identify the funding gap.
  • Determine the performance standards that will be used to estimate needs.
  • Expand the Strategic Highway Corridors to fully encompass a multimodal transportation system that includes highways, passenger and freight rail, public transportation, bicyclists, aviation, ferries and pedestrians.
  • Look beyond the gas tax to establish a set of long-term financial strategies that recognize the likelihood that the gas tax will be insufficient as a primary source for funding future transportation projects.
  • Identify any opportunities that would support NCDOT’s long-range plans.
  • Clearly link North Carolina’s long-term transportation investment strategies to jobs, economic opportunities, and both environmental and financial sustainability.
  • Improve NCDOT’s program delivery processes to fully leverage relationships with its public and private partners.
