As part of the contract, Dewberry will support NCDOT’s various transportation projects by providing natural environment studies, historic architectural and historic landscape analyses, public involvement and community studies assistance, archaeological investigations, visualization products, and traffic noise analysis services. This will allow the firm to provide ecological, cultural, and community studies to NCDOT as part of the transportation project delivery process, including unique environmental services, such as mussel and aquatics surveys and virtual public engagement.

“Protecting our environment and mitigating impacts to local natural and community resources is critical for successful transportation projects,” says Dewberry Contract Manager and Associate Beth Smyre, PE. “We have a dynamic team of environmental specialists in North Carolina and throughout the country who will bring their expertise to this contract, and I’m excited for this opportunity to continue our support of NCDOT.”

The state-wide contract supports NCDOT’s environmental compliance goals and is valued at $3 million.
