The average driver in the Wilmington area loses $1,317 annually as a result of driving on roads that are deteriorated, congested, and that lack some desirable safety features, according to a new report from TRIP, a national transportation research nonprofit based in Washington, DC.
Local speakers will join TRIP at a virtual news conference on Wednesday to highlight the report’s findings. The report, “North Carolina Transportation by the Numbers: Meeting the State’s Need for Safe, Smooth and Efficient Mobility,” examines road and bridge conditions, congestion, economic development, highway safety, and transportation funding in the Asheville, Charlotte Metro, Raleigh-Durham, Triad and Wilmington urban areas and statewide.
A link to a video containing TRIP spokesperson comments on the report’s findings for the Wilmington area will also be posted on the TRIP website at noon on January 27.
