About Projects In Development
Planning and/or design is underway for these projects. They are generally less than 10 years from right-of-way acquisition or construction. Planning includes examining multiple alternatives and analyzing environmental effects.

Long-Range Studies

About Long-Range Studies
These are advanced planning studies that guide NCDOT's decision-making process and future improvements along a corridor or section of roadway. Projects resulting from these studies are generally at least 10 years or more from construction.

Long-range studies can help NCDOT determine which projects should be funded in the future. Even if a project has been the subject of a long-range study, planning studies must still be done before the project can be implemented.
