A new report to be released by TRIP examines Asheville and North Carolina road and bridge conditions, travel trends, traffic congestion, highway safety, transportation funding, and the status of needed transportation improvements. Local speakers will join TRIP, a Washington-DC based transportation research organization, on Thursday to highlight the report’s findings and discuss possible solutions.

The report, Keeping North Carolina Mobile: Progress and Challenges in Providing an Efficient, Safe and Well-maintained Transportation System, examines the impact of recent transportation funding legislation and documents the current and future funding shortfall faced by NCDOT.
