Best of the Best at NCDOT

NCDOT periodically highlights projects or initiatives that demonstrate environmental stewardship and streamlining.

North Carolina’s River Basin Signage Program

A partnership between the North Carolina Department of Transportation and the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the River Basin Signage Program has posted "river basin signs" along highways throughout North Carolina. The program has also identified the river basin boundaries on the State Transportation Map.

The signs and map are all part of a statewide educational program to raise awareness of the importance of North Carolina’s river basins. Road signs have been placed along highways in each of the seventeen river basins within North Carolina.
