RALEIGH — N.C. Department of Transportation Public Transportation Division Director Teresa Hart will join Haywood Public Transit staff and local officials on Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 1 p.m. to cut the ribbon on the new Haywood Public Transit administration facility and fleet lot.
The new facility is located at the corner of Jones Cove Road and Armory Drive near Haywood Community College in Clyde. This location gives the system improved access to main roads, as well as Interstate 40 and U.S. 74, allowing for improved efficiency in coordination of services.
In addition to administrative offices, the new facility, which cost a total of $928,000 to construct, also includes a secure gated lot for the system’s fleet of vehicles. Construction costs were paid for with $500,000 in state funding and $428,000 in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
The NCDOT Public Transportation Division awards grant funds to local public transportation systems. These grants enable systems to provide people in all 100 counties access to education, job opportunities and health care.
