RALEIGH - A new North Carolina transportation funding model will direct more money to projects with a greater economic impact, Gov. Pat McCrory said Thursday.
The plan, which requires legislative approval, directs more money toward statewide and regional projects that can prove their potential worth with data. A system that once awarded money equally among 14 divisions would instead leave 20 percent of available funding for those districts to share and leave the rest for competitive projects that address key issues such as congestion, travel time and linking economic centers.
