CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Local governments in the metropolitan Charlotte area are joining with transportation officials in North Carolina and South Carolina to determine how people living in the region travel.

The survey will be conducted through the end of this month at designated stops in Anson, Catawba, Cherokee, Cleveland, Davidson, Iredell, Lincoln, Rowan and Stanly counties in North Carolina. It’s also being conducted in Chester, Chesterfield, Lancaster and York counties in South Carolina. Motorists will be chosen at random to participate.

The results of the survey will be collected with other data to plan long-range transportation improvements and identify transportation priorities for the region.

Surveys will be conducted between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. at strategic locations on non-highway facilities. Local law enforcement will be at each site to assist with traffic.
