Welcome to the Nevada County Transportation Commission (NCTC) website. Our website is organized to give you convenient access to a wide range of information about NCTC and the services we provide in both regional transportation planning and airport land use planning.
The Mission of the NCTC is to Plan, Communicate and Coordinate with the citizens and decision makers of Nevada County, Grass Valley, Nevada City, Truckee, and Caltrans to create a balanced regional transportation system.
This includes administration of regional, state, and federal funding for projects related to roadways, bridges, public transportation services, railways, airports, bicycle facilities, and pedestrian amenities. Throughout this process the NCTC seeks to protect the rural qualities and historic character of Nevada County.
In developing these transportation solutions, the NCTC initiates design concepts, engineering feasibility studies, environmental studies, and proposes funding sources to construct transportation improvements. Once these tasks are completed, projects are turned over to Caltrans or to a local jurisdiction for construction.
