Orange Unified Transportation Board survey

The Orange Unified Transportation Board has initiated a survey about transportation in Orange County.  More information is below.

We need YOUR input! Orange County is working with the NC Department of Transportation, the Triangle Area Rural Planning Organization, the Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization, and the Orange Unified Transportation Board to create a Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) for the County. It will recommend improvements for highways, public transportation, and bicycle and pedestrian facilities over the next 25 to 30 years. Although the CTP does not schedule or fund improvements, it is an essential tool in guiding the safe and effective use of the County's transportation system. The purpose of this survey is to obtain your opinions and identify transportation issues that are important to the citizens, businesses, and officials of Orange County.
