RALEIGH – The following are highlights from this week at the N.C. Department of Transportation. The stories below are also featured in
NCDOT Now, the department's weekly newscast.
NCDOT’s Ferry Division is ensuring those who want to ride the ferry this year are safe. Not only is social distancing encouraged while on the ferry, crew members and passengers are required to wear a mask.
So, while you ride the ferry this summer and wear a mask, take a picture of yourself, family and friends. NCDOT then wants you to post it to social media and add #FerryCoolMask and you could be featured on the
department’s social media pages.

Mobi Awards Presented Next Week on Social Media
Next week, NCDOT will use social media to present the winners of the
second annual Mobi Awards.
The Mobi Awards recognize the state’s best projects that used two or more modes of transportation such as greenways, public transportation hubs, and roads with walking paths. We had more than 60 transportation projects enter into this year’s contest.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we’re presenting this year’s Mobi Awards on our YouTube channel. If you’d like to tune in, visit our
