Prioritization 6.0

The project submittal window for Prioritization 6.0 closed July 31, 2020. The WMPO submitted projects from the then adopted MTP, Cape Fear Transportation 2040, through coordination with project partners and NCDOT Division 3. The next steps of the Prioritization process are to be taken by NCDOT to score all projects and program the highest scoring and eligible projects for money at the statewide tier. This task is expected to be completed by Summer 2021. To learn more about the Prioritization 6.0 process, visit NCDOT’s 2023-2032 STIP Development page.


Cape Fear Change in Motion 2020, the newest update to the Short-Range TDM Plan, was adopted by the WMPO Board in April. The purpose of this plan is to recommend, support, and implement expansion of transportation options in the Wilmington Urban Area, and to essentially alter the perception of transportation from driving a personal vehicle to include the myriad of alternative transportation choices that are available in the region. For more information and to view the final plan, visit Go Coast’s Cape Fear Change in Motion 2020 page.
