Transportation
Jan. 26, 2021 

City DOT officials are holding a virtual meeting Feb. 4 to acquaint local businesses with newly established goals for ensuring that disadvantaged businesses have a fair opportunity to participate in federally funded Department of Transportation projects.

The meeting will be held from 10 a.m. to noon using the GoToWebinar online meeting service. A link to register for the meeting is posted at tinyurl.com/DBEmeeting. Participants will be able to join the meeting using Mac, PC or mobile devices.

The participation goals are designed to ensure that small businesses owned and controlled by social and economically disadvantaged individuals have an opportunity to participate in transportation-related contracts in Winston-Salem and the surrounding area. The goals apply to any services—not just construction contracts – that are related to projects funded with federal transportation dollars.

The goals were set under the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise program of the U.S. Department of Transportation and will apply to all federally funded transportation contracts for Winston-Salem, the Winston-Salem Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Winston-Salem Transit Authority.

More information about the DBE program is posted at CityofWS.org/2779.
