Transportation Planning

The Town of Davidson is a walkable, smart-growth oriented community and is committed to moving people, not just cars. As the town continues to grow, we will promote streets that are designed to offer safe access to all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and transit riders of all ages and abilities.

Streets are a vital part of livable, attractive communities. Everyone, regardless of age, ability, income, race, or ethnicity, ought to have safe, comfortable, and convenient access to community destinations and public places–whether walking, driving, bicycling, or taking public transportation.

Davidson will strive to ensure that residents and visitors will be able to easily cross the street, walk to shops, and bicycle to work.



The Metropolitan Transportation Plan defines the policies, programs, and projects to be implemented through 2050 in order to reduce congestion, improve safety, support land use plans, and provide mobility choices in the CRTPO planning area. It also addresses the goals and objectives of the CRTPO, the various components of the transportation planning process, socio-economic and financial assumptions, and transportation-related environmental and health issues. It was adopted in April of 2022.

As the designated regional transportation planning entity of all of Iredell and Mecklenburg counties, and the western and central, urbanized portions of Union County, the CRTPO is responsible for the long-range planning efforts for the region. The CRTPO, in partnership with the federal, state, and local agencies, works collaboratively to address the transportation needs of the region.
