Comprehensive Transportation Plan

Brunswick County Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP)

The Brunswick County Comprehensive Transportation Plan (commonly known as the CTP) is a long-range multimodal transportation plan that will assess Brunswick County’s existing and future transportation needs for roadways, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, transit services, and rail.  Below are the general purposes of this plan:

  • Identifies existing and future transportation needs and solutions.
  • Identifies and prioritizes transportation projects.
  • Provide a common framework and long-range vision for transportation facilities across Brunswick County for local governments, regional planning organizations, and the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

Brunswick County’s most recent transportation plan was completed in 2010 and was developed for the future year 2035 and commonly referred to as the 2010 Brunswick County Comprehensive Transportation Plan

The CTP must be updated periodically to re-evaluate transportation needs and analyze alternatives with the latest available data and growth trends.  The study area is the Grand Strand Area Transportation Study Metropolitan Planning Organization (GSATS MPO) area and the Cape Fear Rural Planning Organization (CFRPO) area.  While the Wilmington MPO area is not an official part of this CTP, Wilmington MPO Staff are participating to ensure that connectivity.  The Brunswick County CTP is led by North Carolina Department of Transportation Division 3 and a joint effort between Brunswick County, Brunswick County Municipalities, the North Carolina Department of Transportation –Transportation Planning Division (NCDOT TPD), the North Carolina Department of Transportation Division 3 (NCDOT Division 3), Grand Strand Area Transportation Study Metropolitan Planning Organization (GSATS MPO) and the Cape Fear Rural Planning Organization (CFRPO).

Brunswick County and the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) are inviting residents, business-owners, visitors, and other commuters who frequently travel across the county to share their input through an interactive survey.
