Date: Thursday, October 15, 2015

Topic: Managing Contaminated Sites of Concern on Transportation Projects

Registration & Networking: 5:30PM - 6:30PM
Program: 6:30PM - 8:00PM

Summary: The North Carolina Department of Transportation’s mission is to connect people and places in North Carolina safely and efficiently, with accountability and environmental sensitivity.   Planned transportation projects are often in the path of gas stations, dry cleaners, landfills and other sites of concern.  These sites pose potential hazards, expense and delays to the Department’s projects. The Department’s GeoEnvironmental Section is tasked with managing these sites during planning, design, construction and maintenance of transportation projects to ensure due diligence, tolerable risk, and appropriate waste management.  An overview of the lifecycle of transportation projects will be used to illustrate how these sites of concern are identified, communicated to the stakeholders, and addressed prior to and during construction.
