Transportation Committee

Transportation within Carteret County and its municipalities is a valuable and important asset. The Carteret County Transportation Committee was created by the Carteret County Board of Commissioners in an effort to organize the County's citizens and towns, and the leaders of Carteret County into one unified voice, to serve as the primary liaison between Carteret County, the North Carolina Department of Transportation and all other state and federal agencies on transportation planning issues in Carteret County.
