The Mooretown Road Extension was incorporated into the adopted Comprehensive Plan in 2009 after analysis revealed that the road could improve evacuation options during severe weather events and had the potential to alleviate traffic congestion. It was also noted that this road extension could open several large parcels of land to economic development. However, the Comprehensive Plan does not define a specific route for the Mooretown Road Extension.
The Study examined the feasibility and alternatives for extending Mooretown Road (SR 603) from Lightfoot Road north to Croaker Road. It weighs potential benefits and impacts to property and business owners located in the study area. The Study was adopted by the Board of Supervisors in December 2015, click the linked text to view the text of the adopted study and its appendix.
