Leland Resilient Routes

Sturgeon Creek

The Town of Leland has been awarded funding through the North Carolina Emergency Management Transportation Infrastructure Resiliency Fund (TIRF) from the N.C. Department of Public Safety. The money will fund the Leland Resilient Routes Project to identify critical routes within and surrounding Town limits. The routes will be analyzed to determine their resiliency to coastal hazards such as flooding and storm surge. For routes that prove vulnerable to coastal hazards, potential solutions will be identified.
