Released last week, TRIP’s “Moving North Carolina Forward” report examines the condition, use, safety and efficiency of North Carolina’s surface transportation system and the impact of additional transportation funding. The report also looks at the challenges North Carolina faces to accommodate future transportation growth, maintain the existing system, and sustain adequate state transportation investment despite the funding impacts of highway construction cost inflation, increasing fuel efficiency standards, and the adoption of electric vehicles. The data is analyzed on a regional basis and our partners at local chambers in Asheville, Wilmington, Raleigh, Winston-Salem, and Charlotte collaborated to amplify the results.

“North Carolina’s transportation infrastructure is essential to moving goods and people safely and efficiently,” said Gary Salamido, president and CEO of the North Carolina Chamber. “TRIP’s latest report underscores the critical need for investment in our state’s transportation network, such as those called for in Senate Bill 354, which would provide a needed, bipartisan approach to jumpstarting funding that will benefit all modes of transportation. While we have made great strides, our state’s leaders must continue to modernize transportation revenue streams to secure a prosperous, competitive future for North Carolina and its people.”
