The documents will be available for review and public comments will be received from February 1 – March 2, 2019.

Public meetings will be held on the dates, times, and locations below. All meetings are drop-in format, with no formal presentation at a set time.

2018-2027 Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP) Amendments
The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) identifies the transportation projects that GCLMPO and NCDOT plan to undertake over the next ten years. The GCLMPO’s 2018-2027 MTIP is being modified to reflect amendments to the 2018-2027 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). For more information, click here.

Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) Amendments
The Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) is a long range planning document that will assist the local governments within the GCLMPO planning area and its representatives in making transportation decisions over the next 30+ years.

The City of Mount Holly has submitted a request to amend the adopted CTP to include a recommended boulevard with a multi-use path from Tuckaseege Road to Caldwell Drive. In addition, GCLMPO staff has requested to amend the adopted CTP to include a recommended fixed guideway along US 29/74 from the Catawba River to Downtown Gastonia. For more information, click here.

The Gaston-Cleveland-Lincoln Metropolitan Planning Organization (GCLMPO) conducts transportation planning in cooperation with the state and federal governments. The GCLMPO is required to approve a work program and budget to identify tasks and expenses for the upcoming fiscal year. For more information, click here.
