Some Wonder If NC Governor-Elect Cooper Will (or Can?) Act on I-77 Toll Lanes Project

WSOC reports, “Drivers who voted against Pat McCrory because he supported the I-77 tolls are anxiously waiting to see how the new governor will handle the controversial project.” The report adds, “On [December 14], the head of state transportation said if [Governor-elect Roy Cooper] is planning any changes he hasn’t heard about them. ‘There’s been no discussion of that project,’ Transportation Secretary Nick Tennyson said. Even so, there’s no guarantee Tennyson would stay in his current position once Cooper takes office or what the governor-elect’s final plan will be.”
