RALEIGH - The State Transportation starting May 13 will hold four public meetings in communities along the Interstate 95 corridor for attendees to learn about the results of the I-95 Economic Assessment, as well as the next steps in the process of improving the highway.

Attendees will be able to discuss the study one-on-one with NCDOT officials in an informal setting and will also have the opportunity to submit written comments or questions.

NCDOT is studying the many possible ways to fund improvements on I-95 and how those ways will impact the economy of the interstate’s corridor.
