Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx Talks Toll Lanes

CHARLOTTE, NC — Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx says it is up to elected officials to sell the public on managed lane projects like the controversial I-77 toll lanes.

During a visit to Charlotte Thursday, the former Mayor said he wouldn’t play Monday morning quarterback to Governor McCrory, who refused to take action.

“I think a lot of the challenges have to do with how elected officials get out and pound the payment and let people know what it is they are choosing between and why they are going with a public-private partnership,” said Foxx.

Foxx came to Charlotte to talk about new transportation technology at UNC Charlotte’s Uptown campus.
