Build N.C. Infrastructure Investments Approved by State Lawmakers

“This new approach to funding transportation projects will accelerate the seamless movement of people, goods, and services to create jobs and attract industry to North Carolina.”“Build N.C. is another important step to get politics out of highway funding and address the strain put on our infrastructure by a rapidly growing population. As our state’s population expands, shifts, and diversifies, North Carolina remains committed to an objective transportation formula that provides transparency and increases economic development opportunities.”“Improving connectivity in North Carolina’s infrastructure systems is essential to our long-term economic success. Build N.C. and the Strategic Transportation Investments law are models for reaching consensus and investing in projects that will improve citizens’ quality of life. Through smarter spending on transportation investments, the state General Assembly has made highways, railroads, ports and airports – the arteries of commerce in North Carolina – more accessible and of higher quality for taxpayers and businesses.”
