The regional business community will host a one-day RTA tour in Richmond, Va. on June 18.

The event is an outstanding opportunity to connect with fellow business, elected, and transportation leaders from across our region, hear from experts in a peer community, advance our regional priorities, and support our partners.


RTA and our member chambers of commerce, in concert with the Research Triangle Foundation of North Carolina and the Central Pines Regional Council, are spearheading a campaign to maximize federal funding to replace, relocate, and lengthen the primary runway at RDU.


RTA and the NC Chamber are leading the push for an access user fee to modernize highway funding. An access fee — which applies a consistent fee to all registered vehicles, regardless of annual usage — is a simple, fair, and resilient way of replacing the state gas tax and keeping vital moving.


RTA supports a study of dramatically accelerating the upgrade of US 1 to a multimodal freeway between I-540 and the Wake/Franklin county line using toll revenue. We are focused on identifying a viable, accelerated solution path with our local, county, regional, state, and federal partners.
