This computer image of the Welcome Center was provided by the Resident Engineer, Stan Hyatt, but created by Chris Parker of NCDOT's Roadway Design. This image and others were used to show interested groups what the Welcome Center would look like before any of the grading began. Chris used the proposed cross sections and existing digital terrain models (DTM's) to create the shape of the site, then merged the plan design and building location into the image itself. Compare this rending with the actual photos of the Welcome Center. This rendering was created back in April 2002.
