July 15 – NC DOT Public Meeting on Char-Meck Area Transportation Projects

Share Your Thoughts on Point Distribution for Local Projects

Citizens are encouraged to help North Carolina take the next step forward to implement the Strategic Transportation Investments law.

Signed into law last summer, STI allows NCDOT to use its existing revenues to fund more projects that improve the state’s infrastructure, which will help create jobs and boost the economy.

The law directs each of the department’s 14 Transportation Divisions to assign points to local projects considered important to their area.

NCDOT wants to know what you think about:

  • The method your local division developed to determine how to assign these points
  • The number of points your local division plans to allot to different types of projects, including highway, aviation, bicycle and pedestrian, ferry, public transportation and rail

These points, when combined with a data-driven score, are used in determining the final score for each project on the Regional and Division levels. Projects on the Statewide level are scored using data only.

The divisions will hold public comment meetings in June and July where citizens can stop in, ask questions and share their thoughts about the point distribution process. Each division’s initial meeting will kick off a 30-day public comment period.
