Based on the information uncovered this past week, my campaign has voluntarily relinquished 100% of ALL campaign contributions associated with Mr. Chad Price.
Early studies of the commuter rail project included in Wake and Durham Counties’ transit plans have shown two out of the eight route scenarios studied would likely qualify for the federal funding needed to complete the project. An exploratory study, known as the Major Investment Study (MIS), was authorized by the two counties and completed in May 2019. The study looked at the people, homes and businesses along the corridor and evaluated environmental factors that could affect the project.
Wake County’s draft transit work plan outlines big-impact investments for the county and at the top of that list is a $67 million project for the next fiscal year, which will fund the county’s first bus rapid transit (BRT) corridor along New Bern Avenue in East Raleigh, N.C., with an expected completion at the end of 2023.
