If your special event needs to use any portion of the North Carolina highway system, the Department of Transportation wants to help. All special events that require the use of the NC highway system, including marathons, parades, bicycle races, festivals and other events need prior approval of NCDOT to ensure the accommodation of spectators and participants and the safety of all road users.
