RALEIGH — The N.C. Department of Transportation honored communities this week that developed some of the state’s best multimodal projects.
The city of Creedmoor Cross City Trail won the Mobi Award for best rural project. Nominated by the city, the Cross City Trail completes a four-phase, greenway throughout Creedmoor. It opened in September 2020 and provides a separate, ADA-accessible bicycle and pedestrian path that connects Lake Rogers Park to downtown Creedmoor and new housing subdivisions along N.C. Highway 56. Check out the winner’s reaction.

The NCDOT Mobi Awards, which started in 2019, recognizes transportation projects that improve the economy and enhance the quality of life in North Carolina communities. Projects had to combine the use of at least two transportation modes such as aviation, bicycle, pedestrian, ferry, public transportation, rail and roadway. More than 30 projects competed in this year’s NCDOT Mobi Awards.
“Multimodal projects are an important piece of our transportation present and future,” said state Transportation Secretary Eric Boyette. “We hope that the Mobi Awards will inspire more communities to think creatively about the next great project in transportation.”  
After hosting the 2020 Awards ceremony virtually, this year’s awards were held in person during a luncheon event at the Raleigh Marriott City Center. NCDOT’s Deputy Secretary for Multimodal Transportation Julie White presented the awards.
“These projects we honored today connect people to opportunity, to jobs, to healthcare and education,” White said. “They make our state more equitable and reduce our carbon footprint. In short, they make our state more accessible, attractive and competitive.”
Judges selected winners and honorable mentions from the following categories: Rural, Urban, Small Urban, Large Urban and Innovation. There was also a sixth category, Most Voted Project. For the MVP category, all this year’s entries were placed online so the public could vote for the winner. The projects with the most votes won.
The 2022 NCDOT Mobi Book, which has detailed descriptions and pictures of all this year’s entries, can be found online.

Gracie represented Granville County and the state of North Carolina through her work at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C. to honor her grandfather and others who have served in the U.S. armed forces. She exemplifies the motto of Wreaths Across America: to remember fallen veterans; to honor those who serve; and to teach others the value of freedom. Gracie received a certificate of appreciation, a challenge coin, and a statute of an American bald eagle from committee chairman Michael Turner, right.
