The state Department of Transportation is continuing to seek input on the best way to pay for improvements to the I-95 corridor. NC DOT officials released a study last week saying that among several scenarios, mitigated tolls would provide the best economic benefit.
Out-of-state residents and businesses would pay more under a mitigated toll system. It would raise more than five billion dollars per year through 2050 to upgrade I-95. Improvements include road widening, re-paving and bridge replacements.
