7/30/15--WE NEED YOUR HELP!
The NCDOT revealed earlier this week that tolls are coming to the entire Charlotte Metro Area. The first projects they've unveiled are I-77 in North and South Charlotte, I-485 and U.S. 74. Just look below at the slides presented to the Charlotte City Council earlier this week--they're now studying toll lanes on nearly every major thoroughfare in the Charlotte Metro area. NOW is your chance to voice your opinion!
THE DEADLINE FOR PUBLIC INPUT ON ALL TOLL LANE PROJECTS IS TOMORROW (FRIDAY, 7/31)! WE URGENTLY ASK YOU TO SEND THE FOLLOWING EMAIL ASAP, TO: firstname.lastname@example.org. PLEASE SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS!
SUBJECT: VOTE NO ON THE 2016-2025 TIP!
Dear CRTPO Members:
As someone with an interest in Charlotte's transportation future, I respectfully ask you to vote NO on the 2016-2025 Transportation Improvement Plan.
I do not support managed lanes in the Charlotte metro area.
Specifically, I further request that you:
--Amend the TIP to include an I-77 general purpose lanes project from exit 23 to exit 36
--Remove projects I-4750AA and I-5405--High Occupancy Toll Lanes from I-277 to Exit 36--from the TIP
I strongly urge you to cancel the I-77 toll lanes contract with I-77 Mobility Partners. I do not support working with companies that have past ethical violations, especially when they do not fully disclose them when legally required. I believe that we may be able to exit the contract with no penalty, as I-77 Mobility Partners failed to properly disclose past ethical violations.
