For North Carolina, a modernized transportation network, with strong roads, rails, ports, and airports, is vital to our continued success. To support this critical need, North Carolina’s leaders will need to secure a more sustainable stream of transportation revenue in the years ahead. This report, conducted on the Foundation’s behalf by N.C. State University’s Institute for Transportation Research and Education (ITRE), gives business leaders and our partners a roadmap to examine the routes we might take to get there. The report identifies four of the most viable funding options to reduce our state’s reliance on the outdated motor fuels tax and charts pathways for their implementation. It also examines several transportation projects that have been completed across the state in recent years to highlight the multiplying effects strategic transportation investments can impart on local economies.
