JUMPO consists of representatives from each of these urban areas and municipalities, as well as the North Carolina Department of Transportation, and area military bases

The City of Jacksonville is designated as the lead planning agency for JUMPO in facilitating regional and cooperative planning processes that serve as the basis for the expenditure of all federal transportation funds for improving our area transportation network including: streets, highways, bridges, public transit, bicycle and pedestrian networks.

Prioritization 7.0

Each of NCDOT’s six modes of transportation (highway, ferry, rail, public transportation, bicycle & pedestrian and aviation) uses a data-drive approach for ranking projects. 


public Comment

P7.0 community Importance Survey

Prioritization 7.0 quantitative scores for roads projects were released by NCDOT on May 24, 2024, and are available to view P7.0 Project Scores. JUMPO is asking for public input on what projects are most important to the community. To take the survey, please click SURVEY.

In accordance with our P7.0 Local Input Methodology, a Community Importance Assessment survey will be used to establish the relative importance of transportation projects to the Jacksonville Urban Area community (Highway, Aviation, and Bicycle & Pedestrian projects). Local knowledge of the merits of proposed projects carries considerable weight in determining the assignment of points which will be added to Regional Impact and Division Needs projects competing for statewide funding.

Anyone who wishes to comment may do so by sending an email to jumpo@jacksonvillenc.gov or via phone at (910) 938-7433. Comments must be received on or before July 30, 2024. All feedback will be provided to the TCC Prioritization Subcommittee and TAC for consideration.
