At SEPI we support the important work NCDOT plans, manages and delivers across the state of North Carolina. We understand the significance of transportation and infrastructure growth and its overarching influence and impact on our state’s economic development. Therefore, during the current infrastructure funding challenges, we stand beside the NCDOT and are optimistic a solution will be identified soon.

The NC Chamber launched the NC Can’t Afford to Stop Coalition to align the business community to highlight and educate members of the General Assembly on the importance of addressing this issue. Over the last few years, as a state we have achieved tremendous progress on North Carolina’s transportation infrastructure, and we can’t afford to stop now.

The coalition’s current focus is on addressing the NCDOT cash balance crisis. The coalition will continue to build off the first steps we take to address that issue in order to secure long-term stability and funding for our state’s infrastructure needs.

How can you engage and express your support? Join SEPI and more than 120 organizations and more than 180 individuals from within those organizations by showing your support for the NCDOT and this challenge. It is not one that affects a single industry in our state, but one that will impact our entire business community.
