ATRI Seeks Truckers’ Input on N.C. I-95 Tolls Proposal

The American Transportation Research Institute is seeking input from carriers and drivers that travel North Carolina’s portion of Interstate 95 in connection with a study on how best to pay for improvements along the critical East Coast freight artery.

In the recent election, both of the state’s major-party gubernatorial candidates were against the proposal to toll the major north-south corridor.

The federal government last year agreed to consider a state application for tolls but legislators said that before the state proceeds, they want a study to determine the economic impact to the state of tolling and other funding options.

ATRI is part of the research team studying the effect on economic issues, the group said Monday.

Its questionnaire asks drivers and carriers for such information as how many miles they travel on North Carolina’s portion of I-95 and what problems they encounter with traffic congestion and finding rest areas.

To take the online questionnaire, visit ATRI’s website:
