McCrory, NC DOT Secretary Worried About Road Money

DURHAM, N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory and his administration's transportation leaders are worried about the future of state and federal funding sources to pay for roads and bridges in North Carolina.


McCrory told a North Carolina Chamber conference the state's transportation projects will be delayed if Congress fails to re-authorize a law expiring this fall. Federal money makes up more than one-quarter of state transportation spending. Transportation Secretary Tony Tata said Wednesday DOT would have to stop writing checks by August without a resolution.


Chief Deputy Secretary Nick Tennyson also told business leaders the state's current road-building revenue sources particularly the gasoline tax cannot meet infrastructure demands.


Tata is working on a 25-year transportation plan for McCrory, who says it will take into account fewer dollars coming from Washington.
