N.C. Department of Transportation’s Division of Highways, in partnership with its Office of Civil Rights, is inviting small, disadvantaged businesses to learn more about contracting opportunities with the department.

From 10 a.m.-noon Sept. 25, NCDOT staff will host a virtual event for NCDOT’s Highway Division 10. Division 10 includes Anson, Cabarrus, Mecklenburg, Stanly and Union.

To date, more than 200 people representing more than 150 firms have participated in the events.

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