Governor Pat McCrory and Department of Transportation Secretary Tony Tata unveiled their draft 10-year State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) this morning. It’s one of the final steps toward implementing a new law passed by the General Assembly last year that funds 478 highway projects and will create some 300,000 new jobs in North Carolina.
“I’m pleased that the transportation law and vision, which is based on economic development, safety, and congestion instead of politics, is working as intended and exceeding our expectations,” said Governor McCrory in a press release. “Over the next 10 years, this new law and vision will help create thousands of new jobs, invest millions in our communities, and better connect all North Carolinians to work, life and play. This is just the beginning and we will continue to build our infrastructure from the mountains to the coast, rural to urban, which will better connect people to jobs, education, and health care.”
