, which became effective Jan. 1, 2019, is a financing tool that will ensure the N.C. Department of Transportation can continue strong delivery of critical road projects at the regional and division tiers that do not qualify for a similar federal funding tool.
Those projects will benefit residents across North Carolina by providing the infrastructure to better access jobs, health care facilities and educational opportunities.
Benefits of Build NC
- The N.C. Department of Transportation can maintain strong project delivery, which is essential to a strong transportation system that is the backbone of the state’s economic competitiveness and quality of life.
- The critical infrastructure that communities across North Carolina have been waiting for will be delivered sooner than they would be if Build NC was not available.
- Private sector businesses across the state that build North Carolina roadways will see a stable industry over the next few years, allowing them to grow capacity to meet market demand with less risk.
Strong Project Delivery
In the past year, NCDOT has made process improvements that led to the acceleration of 350 projects and made room for an additional 144 projects in the State Transportation Improvement Program, the department’s plan that identifies the construction funding and schedule for state transportation projects over a 10-year period.
This level of project delivery is critical to making sure North Carolina citizens have safe roadways.
