NCDOT staff and emergency management personnel presented a new plan to improve the transportation system in the state — that means keeping roads in good condition for drivers’ and passengers’ safety. The flood warning system helps monitor thousands of bridges and culverts across the state, including major roads like I-40. The grant would improve the system by:
- Allowing crews to know when flood waters will or are impacting critical points on the roads
- Positioning and dispatching resources more effectively so that NCDOT staff can respond to flood-induced disruptions and resolve the issue more quickly
- Monitoring and reporting in real-time which road, bridges, and culverts are more vulnerable
The voting period will close at tomorrow, Nov. 14 at 11:59 p.m.
