RALEIGH – The N.C. Department of Transportation’s NC FIRST Commission is asking the public to use a new online investment tool to provide input on future revenue solutions from now until Dec. 14.
Creating Revenue and Finding Transportation Solutions, or CRAFTS, allows you to create your own revenue and investment scenarios. This tool was created by SAS to aid the NC FIRST Commission in finding revenue solutions as the group prepares to make final recommendations to the Board of Transportation.
NC FIRST unveiled the CRAFTS tool in September, allowing commissioners to test the tool before it was made available to the public today. The public can now access the tool and comment portal on the CRAFTS webpage.
Commissioners will review public input before making final recommendations in January for sustaining the future of North Carolina’s transportation system.
The NC FIRST Commission was formed in March 2019 to research and advise the secretary of transportation of potential components of a sustainable long-range transportation investment strategy.
