Public Comment Opportunity for NCDOT Projects
Division 5 Projects Include Some in Garner
NCDOT has unveiled its proposed funding and construction plan with more than 1,600 transportation projects across the state.
The list includes 18 new projects for Division 5, which covers Durham, Franklin, Granville, Person, Vance, Wake and Warren counties. Projects were selected based on technical data, as well as input from local officials and the public. A list of the projects in the draft plan and additional information is available on the NCDOT website. (The website includes a link to a map showing projects [including ones in Garner] that were included in the draft plan and that were studied but not included in it.)
The transportation plan is updated every two years. Projects scheduled in the first five years are considered committed, while projects in the final five years of the draft 10-year plan will be re-evaluated again as part of the development process for the 2022-2031 plan. That will start later this year.
There is an opportunity to submit comments online through April 15. The draft plan will be considered for final approval by the Board of Transportation this summer.
