WILMINGTON — Gov. Pat McCrory is ready to unveil his administration’s plan to help ensure North Carolina has the transportation infrastructure it needs for a growing population in the next generation.
McCrory and state Transportation Secretary Tony Tata prepared to visit four airports Wednesday to unveil what’s being called the “Governor’s 25-Year Vision.” They’ll begin in Wilmington and then travel to Greenville, Winston-Salem and just outside Asheville.
The Republican governor wanted such a blueprint before he was elected governor, saying the city of Charlotte had one while he was mayor.
Transportation spending already has changed dramatically since he was sworn in. The legislature passed a law in 2013 laying out a new formula for determining how and where highway funding would be spent.
