Governor Pat McCrory and Transportation Secretary Tony Tata unveiled the Governor’s 25-Year Vision for transportation in
North Carolina September 17 with a cross-state tour that included stops in Wilmington, Greenville, Winston-Salem and Asheville to detail the challenges faced by and solutions proposed for each of the state’s four major regions: coastal, eastern, central and western, as well as comprehensive solutions for the entire state.
The plan can be reviewed online at www.ncvision25.gov.
“Transportation is the backbone of our state’s economy, and investing in transportation solutions will help expand opportunities and create jobs,” Governor McCrory said. “Companies want to invest where they know there is a strong vision for moving people and products and that is why we have made this strategic vision a priority.”
The 25-year vision builds on the foundation established by the Strategic Transportation Investments law passed by the General Assembly and signed by Governor McCrory last summer. The law changes the way North Carolina funds and prioritizes major transportation projects, allowing the state to make the best possible use of its existing resources over a 10-year period.
