Addressing Goldsboro’s Future Transportation Needs

What do citizens see as the priorities for transportation in the Goldsboro area?

The Goldsboro Metropolitan Planning Organization is attempting to get the answer as it updates the region’s 30-year transportation plan.

The MPO held a public input session on the plan Thursday evening at the Goldsboro Event Center.

Allison Fluitt with Kimley Horne and Associates is the project manager for the new Metropolitan Transportation Plan.

She says the plan is updated every five years, and it covers roadways, sidewalks for pedestrians, bicycle-friendly streets, aviation, and freight.

Fluitt says one thing citizens are concerned with is safety, particularly at intersections.
