Charlotte is expected to grow by 400,000 people by 2040 and keeping up with the city’s infrastructure needs is critical. Maintaining and improving our level of mobility is key for continued economic and land development success and competitiveness. “Optional toll lanes work by changing price per mile every five minutes,” said Ned Curran, Board of Transportation Chairman. “The toll rate is going to be what people are willing to pay – it’s that simple,” he stated.
Curran also discussed the legislation that was passed modernizing the way NC’s transportation network is built, maintained and funded and how this will impact commercial real estate and the future of our city.
