Construction Information

How a Road Gets Built

A lot of work goes into building a road long before the first layer of concrete is ever poured. Learn how the site is selected, who creates the plans and how environmental factors are included in the process.

Public Meetings

The public plays an active role in NCDOT’s road-planning process. NCDOT holds informational workshops and public hearings to provide project information and gather citizen input.

Construction Unit

NCDOT staff does not build the majority of the state’s highways; private contractors do. The Construction Unit helps administer those contracts, as well as track project progress, process pay estimates and claims, and ensure that projects meet set specifications.
