This plan is a joint effort between Stanly County, the Rocky River Rural Planning Organization (RRRPO) and NCDOT. This plan will provide an update to the existing Stanly County 2003 Thoroughfare Plan. The new Comprehensive Transportation Plan area consists of the entire county area boundary, but will exclude the Albemarle, Badin, New London, Locust, and Red Cross communities. The CTP was adopted by Norwood August 1, 2011; Oakboro July 5, 2011; Stanfield June 30, 2011; Richfield July 25, 2011; Misenheimer July 11, 2011; Stanly County August 15, 2011; and endorsed by the RRRPO November 17, 2011.
