RALEIGH — Triangle-area mayors say the region needs $10 billion to keep up with growing traffic troubles over the next 25 years.
The mayors of Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and Cary detailed the plan their Regional Transportation Strategy.
It suggests a small increase in highway building and larger increases for high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, mass transit and routes for pedestrians and bicycles.
The mayors will now lobby state and local goverments as well as the private sector to help foot the bill.
