Comprehensive Transportation Plan 

A Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) is being developed for Chatham County. This study is intended to produce a long range planning document that will assist the local government and its representatives in making transportation decisions over the next 25-30 years.

This plan is a joint effort between Chatham County, the municipalities of Goldston, Pittsboro and Siler City, the Triangle Area RPO, the Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro MPO and the NCDOT.

CTP meetings are held during regular meetings of the Transportation Advisory Committee.
