How much did N.C. DOT and New Hanover County spend on the Wells Fargo Championship?

Tim Buckland

The answers are, well, incomplete and a bit complicated.

From New Hanover County spokeswoman Ruth Smith: “New Hanover County is working under contract with the Wells Fargo Champions for Education to provide public safety services throughout the tournament. This is no different than services that are provided by for other large events.”

Additional expenses certainly will be incurred, but we will not be able to release those figures until after the tournament for several reasons, including for security purposes. The county budget team is working closely with the public safety team and will provide us with details as soon as they are able.”

As for the N.C. Department of Transportation, spokesman Brian Rick said the following: “For the Wells Fargo Tournament, the NCDOT is anticipating to spend $117,000 on signage and other event preparation work to minimize impacts to the traveling public. The resurfacing referenced on Champ Davis (Road) and Futch Creek (Road) was scheduled to cover the widening that was previously completed in 2015 and was not associated with this event.”
