RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The state Transportation Department has begun a 60-day comment period during which North Carolina citizens can share their views on the results of a study about how to move people and goods.

A DOT study mapped out the proposed strategic transportation corridors. They’re based three main factors: providing connections to national transportation networks critical to interstate commerce and national defense; allowing significant inter-regional movements of people and goods across the state; and supporting economic development and efficiency of transport logistics.

The public comment period began Friday and ends Dec. 2. The study policy and map showing the corridors are available online.
