NC Governor Cooper’s Infrastructure Wish List Includes Toll Projects

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper, responding to the request of the National Governor’s Association, has submitted several “shovel ready” infrastructure projects to be considered by the federal government, including two toll projects in Mecklenburg County: one would widen US 74 by adding new general purpose and express lanes, and the other widen I-485 with one express toll lane in each direction from I-77 to US 74 (Independence Boulevard).
