Craven County Comprehensive Transportation Plan Study (CTP)

The Craven County Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) is a joint effort amongst the Down East Rural Planning Organization (DERPO), New Bern Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (NBAMPO), Craven County, City of New Bern, City of Havelock, Town of Bridgeton, Town of Dover, Town of Cove City, Town of River Bend, Town of Trent Woods, Town of Vanceboro, and NCDOT – Transportation Planning Branch. A CTP is a multimodal transportation plan, which identifies transportation deficiencies and provides recommendations to be implemented within a 25-30 year timeframe. The CTP is being developed in an effort to determine the county’s future transportation needs based on the best information available including: population, economic conditions, traffic trends, and patterns of land development. The CTP addresses the following modes of transportation: highway, public transportation, rail, transit, and pedestrian. Recommendations made will provide for the efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally sensitive use of the transportation system while addressing current and future travel needs.
