NCDOT Secretary and NC Governor See Possibility of Future Toll Projects

WBTV reports that North Carolina Secretary of Transportation Jim Trogdon told senators during his confirmation hearing that neither he nor Governor Roy Cooper have ruled out the possibility of funding future transportation projects with toll revenue. Trogdon told transportation committee members, “As a 30-year transportation professional, my opinion is we have to have every tool available to us and tolls are one of those tools that we use to fund innovative financing and fund the acceleration of projects so we don’t have to wait a long period of time.”
