DOT wants comments on projects
RALEIGH — The N.C. Department of Transportation is hosting a meeting Monday for residents of Rowan and surrounding counties to give their opinion on which projects the agency should fund over the next several years.
Residents will be able to give feedback on the proposed final version of the State Transportation Improvement Plan, which lists all the projects that will use federal funds between now and 2016.
The Transportation Department is required by the federal government to have a plan and receive public input on it.
Residents of the Department of Transportation’s Division 9, which includes Rowan, Davidson, Davie, Forsyth and Stokes counties can attend a public meeting Monday in the conference room of the Division 9 Office at 375 Silas Creek Parkway in Winston-Salem.
The meeting will begin at 4 p.m. with a brief presentation. After a question-and-answer period, residents can speak directly with Transportation Department staff and submit written comments. This process will be repeated until the meeting ends at 7 p.m.
Residents can also review the proposed list of projects and comment online at www.ncdot.gov/projects/PublicEngagement.html. They can also visit the website to ask questions, request assistance or access additional information.
