ShiftKnightdale: Comprehensive Transportation Plan

The Town’s Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) presents a long-term vision for roadways, transit and bicycle and pedestrian facilities in Knightdale.  The plan was developed over a year long process which included extensive public and stakeholder outreach. The Town of Knightdale adopted the CTP on November 16, 2022. The CTP will guide the Town in pursuing projects to implement the long-term transportation vision.
