Ocracoke Workshop Tomorrow

Tomorrow's the last of three public workshops to discuss long-term solutions for the breaches on N.C. 12 caused by Hurricane Irene.  The informal, drop-in style workshop begins at 5 p.m. at the Ocracoke Community Center. Starting at 4:00 p.m. we'll be live tweeting from the community center, via the @NCDOT and @NCDOT_NC12 Twitter accounts. Join the conversation by following the hashtag #NC12NextSteps. We can't promise we'll be able to answer all the questions, but we'll try! And remember, if you have any comments you'd like submitted for official review, please email them to to - the Twitter conversation is informal, but informational, and we hope it will be fun! By the way, you can download the meeting packet here and the maps are on line as well. Hope to see you tomorrow!
