State agency asking how to pay for future transportation projects

By NCDOT staff

The North Carolina Future Investment Resources for Sustainable Transportation (FIRST) Commission launched a citizen web survey last week.

This 15-question survey is available until April 9 and will assess what future revenue options should be considered for the Commission’s final recommendations to the General Assembly in 2021.

The questions assess consumer mobility preferences, transportation needs, potential investment options and more.

The 14-member Commission is tasked with evaluating the state’s current and future transportation investment needs, utilizing research of national and international trends in order to advise the secretary of the Department of Transportation of new or better ways to create a long-term transportation investment strategy that will ensure North Carolina’s economic vitality and competitiveness in the future.
