Pat McCrory: Stop delaying critical infrastructure maintenance

North Carolina's infrastructure capacity is a key element in attracting business and investment. Unfortunately, NC commuters and businesses lose billions of dollars each year from poor road quality and congestion. 29% of our bridges are deficient. The longer maintenance costs are deferred, the greater the eventual repair costs will be. Through better budgeting and planning, a McCrory administration will stop delaying critical infrastructure maintenance to avoid future economic hardship and budget woes

Bev Perdue: Building infrastructure is a top priority to create jobs

The N.C. Department of Transportation seeks proposals starting Oct. 3 for private engineering firms to design replacements for 187 bridges. My top priority is growing jobs and investing in infrastructure leads to job growth. Workers are needed to do design work and construction, and these projects improve our ability to move people and goods efficiently, expanding our economy.
