The Burlington-Graham MPO 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 Burlington-Graham MPO and the NCDOT - Transportation Planning Branch (TPB). 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, but not limited to, population, economic conditions, traffic trends and patterns of land development in and around the town. The study will also include alternative modes of transportation. A recommendation for a solution that provides for the safe, efficient, cost-effective and environmentally sensitive use of the transportation system, while addressing current and future travel needs, will be made.
