Updated:MONROE, N.C. —
North Carolina's turnpike authority and the Department of Transportation (DOT) plans to shed light on the bypass's legal and environmental status during a meeting Monday night.
In May, a court said the DOT and the Federal Highway Administration failed to analyze environmental impacts of the
bypass; such as when the project plans to start again.
Friday, Eyewitness News showed you documents the DOT submitted asking the court to re-hear portions of the case they believe it misunderstood.
The state said this re-hearing process will take some time.
But even if the re-hearing request is denied, state leaders are reviewing ways to push the project forward, even if that means submitting another environmental study.
