Open house next week at Division 7 office in Greensboro
The public is invited to learn more about and comment on the N.C. Department of Transportation’s draft 10-year transportation plan for 2024-2033, called the State Transportation Improvement Program, or STIP, during a weeklong open house.
From Sept. 12-16, during normal business hours, members of the public can visit the Division 7 Office at 1584 Yanceyville Street, Greensboro, N.C. 27415. The sessions will serve as opportunities for people to review the funding and proposed schedules for projects in their area, ask questions of local NCDOT staff and submit comments.
The public can contact Division Planning Engineer Stephen Robinson at (336) 470-0000 or by email via the department’s online portal to answer questions. Division 7 includes Alamance, Caswell, Guilford, Orange and Rockingham counties.
The department will provide auxiliary aids and services under the Americans with Disabilities Act for disabled persons who want to provide input. Anyone requiring special services should contact their local NCDOT division as early as possible so that arrangements can be made.
People who cannot attend the public comment sessions have the opportunity to submit comments online and participate in an online survey to indicate which projects matter most to them.
The department initially unveiled its proposed funding and construction plan in May and has revised the draft document to reflect new sources of revenue. More information on the STIP process can be found on the NCDOT STIP webpage.
