Western Triad public meeting on transportation plan is April 18

WINSTON-SALEM – The N.C. Department of Transportation wants feedback on its Draft 10-Year State Transportation Improvement Program, which identifies the construction funding and scheduling for transportation projects.

The draft plan includes 1,421 projects, including 1,123 highway and 298 nonhighway projects, such as aviation, public transit, rail, ferry, bicycle and pedestrian projects. They cover every county across the state.

DOT will hold a meeting on April 18 for Division 9, which includes Stokes, Rowan, Davie, Davidson and Forsyth counties. The meeting will be from 5 to 7 p.m. at the division office, 375 Silas Creek Parkway, Winston-Salem. The public is invited.

Information is also online, and comments can be submitted by email, phone or mail. Information, including the document and contact is available on the DOT website.

During the past year and a half, the DOT has worked with local planning organizations, the public and other stakeholders across the state to develop the document, which was released in January. The document is updated every two years, and the update process for the next plan will begin late this summer.

Anyone with a disability who wants to attend the meeting and requires special services should contact Diane Wilson at pdwilson1@ncdot.gov or 919-707-6073 to make arrangements.

DOT also will provide interpretive services. Call 800-481-6494 for information.
