RALEIGH – State Transportation Secretary Jim Trogdon, today, announced that he has formed a commission to develop recommendations for modernizing North Carolina’s transportation investment strategy.

The commission will research the impact that emerging technologies, shifting behavior patterns and changing demographics will have on North Carolina’s transportation investment system and then develop new ways to meet the need for critical resources in the future.

The N.C. Future Investment Resources for Sustainable Transportation Commission (NC F1RST Commission) consists of a diverse group of North Carolinians with expertise in the fields of finance, business and public policy. They will work collaboratively for an estimated 18 months before making recommendations for changes to North Carolina’s current transportation investment strategy.

“The transportation industry is on the cusp of fundamental changes that will forever change our relationship to moving goods and people,” Secretary Trogdon said. “The work the NCF1RST Commission will do will be critical for the economic vitality of North Carolina.”

The commission will hold its first meeting Friday, May 3, from 9 a.m. to noon, in Raleigh.
