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.
Engineering and Design
A kick-off meeting for the Leland Resilient Routes project was held on Tuesday January 17. Over the next month, the engineer will be compiling existing critical assets and infrastructure data to identify critical routes throughout and surrounding Town limits.
Town Council approved the proposal and selection of Moffat & Nichol, Inc. as the designer on the project.
The RFQ has been advertised for the design services of the Leland Resilient Routes project. All submittals must be received by 3:00 PM on October 11, 2022.
