Presentation ferry tolling

3,591

Published on

In 2011, the North Carolina General Assembly mandated that NCDOT increase ferry revenue up to $5 million annually. To accomplish this, NCDOT must increase toll rates on the three routes that are currently tolled and begin tolling two additional routes by April 1. NCDOT hired a private firm, Wilbur Smith Associates (now CDM SMITH), to conduct a study to evaluate current ferry usage and research national standards. In addition, this study examined possible ferry toll increases as well as operational and infrastructure improvements necessary to efficiently and effectively implement toll increases and new toll collecting.

  • Wilber Smith co has profited $100,000 for making this slide show and attending meetings. The representative from Wilber Smith, Will Lecthworth, told me that was 'not enough'

  • How much did Wilbur Smith co get paid to make this little slide show? Just curious how the state is spending our tax money and how much tolling has to be done just to pay their fees

  • If you want to increase revenue why single out an island, why don't you consider tolling interstates in North Carolina so everyone can pay their fair share.

  • How about the NCDOT builds Ocracoke a toll-free bridge? They have done it for every other Island in NC.
