Tell Your Legislators To Fund the NCDOT
The COVID-19 pandemic is threatening an already financially strained NCDOT. The NCDOT plans to cut transportation spending by $2 billion dollars in the next 12 months, an almost 75% reduction due to a substantial loss in gas tax revenue and other highway fund receipts. These cuts will have an unprecedented impact on our state’s roads, bridges and infrastructure and are threatening many construction jobs and projects that are considered essential. Tell the Governor and your state legislature to provide immediate funding for the NCDOT to ensure the future of our state’s infrastructure and construction jobs!
