WilmingtonBiz Talk: Talking Transportation

By Vicky Janowski, posted Sep 16, 2021

Thursday's BizTalk covered significant state funding issues for transportation as well as the future of the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge.

The panel included Chad Kimes, the area’s division engineer for the N.C. Department of Transportation, and Mike Kozlosky, head of the Wilmington Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization.

They discussed transportation, including how the state agency plans to address budget shortfalls for future projects because of higher construction and land costs; a recent toll bridge proposal that was blocked to replace the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge; what’s next for the aging bridge; and other topics.
