NC transportation funding structure’s failure to meet the moment as walking and cycling grow during COVID has been a constant theme over the past year. But, since 2013, our NC General Assembly has prevented stand alone pedestrian and bicycle projects from accessing state transprotation dollars.
This has to end.
BikeWalkNC successfully advanced similar language in the last NC General Assembly Session but failed to make change. This year, right now, we have been successful in creating a bill that will restore access to state transportation dollars without disrupting the prioritization process for state, regional and local projects.
It is time to act: contact the bill sponsors and thank them for their support, contact all members of the General Assembly to advance this bill out of committee and to restore funding for pedestrian and bicycle projects!
