Public Opinions of Roadway Assets using Roadway Reviews and Focus Groups

The Institute for Transportation Research and Education (ITRE) is excited to conduct "roadway reviews" on behalf of the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT). Roadway reviews provide a means for the Department to (1) objectively determine expectations that North Carolina residents have for the State's highways and (2) to identify roadway features that residents believe are most important on different types of highways. These results will also be compared to previous findings from 2010-2011 to see how public perception has or has not changed over time. Roadway reviews will be conducted at six locations – two in each of NCDOT's three regions: (1) Western Region, (2) Piedmont Region, and (3) the Eastern Region. To the extent possible, these locations will be conducted along similar roadways used in the previous 2011 study. The specific tasks that will be completed are described in the scope of work below.
