 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.

The Transportation Advisory Committee’s purpose is to provide technical recommendations to the County Commissioners who make decisions and policy on issues on transportation related issues as well as serves as a venue for public discourse. The long-term goal is to create a sustainable transportation system that offers access to various modes of transportation for people and goods.

The TAC meets bimonthly on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:00 PM in Dunlap Classroom (80-A East St. Pittsboro 27312). 

Committee meetings are open to the public. Meeting agendas always provide opportunities for the public to comment.

The next TAC meeting will be held on 
June 28th at 6:00 PM
