Lake Lure-Chimney Rock
This Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) study is a long-range plan, which identifies major transportation improvement needs and develops long-term solutions for the next 25 to 30 years. It is a joint effort between the Town of Lake Lure, Chimney Rock Village, Rutherford County, Isothermal RPO and NCDOT. The CTP study involves both government officials and the public in an effort to determine the area’s future transportation needs based on the best information available including population, economic conditions, traffic trends, and patterns of land development in and around the county. The study includes alternative modes of transportation, such as transit, walking, and biking. Recommendations, based on the Vision, Goals and Objectives established by the CTP Steering Committee, to address current and future deficiencies and that provide for the safe, efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally sensitive use of the transportation system will be made. The CTP was adopted by the Town of Lake Lure (May 21, 2013), Chimney Rock Village (June 18, 2013), and Rutherford County (July 1, 2013). The CTP was endorsed by the Isothermal RPO on May 22, 2013. The CTP was recommended by the Transportation Planning Branch on August 15, 2013. The CTP was adopted by NCDOT Board of Transportation on September 5, 2013. The study was closed out on April of 2014.
