The project logo Enfield Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan

NCDOT has awarded a grant to the Town of Enfield to develop a Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.  The goals of this plan are to develop a list of bicycle and pedestrian projects that help get people moving, make walking and biking safer, and bring jobs to  Enfield. 

Once complete, NCDOT will include the results in development of the Bicycle and Pedestrian elements of the County's Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP).  Comprehensive Transportation Plans are the long range vision plan for transportation networks for Municipalities and Counties throughout the State.  

To be successful the plan needs your support.  We would like to know what projects you think should be undertaken.

Enfield Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan

NCDOT staff along wtih Consultant project Engineers and Planners visited Enfield to get a feel for the Town. The Mayor and a steering committee of eight residents have helped them better understand Enfield. 

The team had hoped to have a local meeting to discuss project ideas with you, however the COVID 19 pandemic has interfered with that process. Instead, we would like you to help us by completing this survey.
