NCDOT Highway Divisions Want Small, Disadvantaged Businesses to Compete for Transportation Contracts


RALEIGH - The N.C. Department of Transportation is encouraging disadvantaged businesses to compete for state transportation contracts.

“Our agency advertises and awards numerous contracts for projects big and small each year, but often many of these businesses may not be aware of how to work with our agency,” said state Transportation Secretary Eric Boyette. “Each project is an opportunity to encourage small and disadvantaged business participation, and to provide those businesses access to compete on NCDOT contracts.”

NCDOT awards contracts in many areas including mowing, litter pickup, landscaping, snow and ice removal, traffic control, painting, striping, and road construction.  

During the outreach events, highway division staff will be on hand to discuss the types of contracts, advertisements for upcoming projects, as well as letting and award processes.  

The outreach event for NCDOT Highway Divisions 1-14 will be held on the following schedule:
