The HOT Lanes Chronicle

The Hot Lanes Chronicle page covers all things about the proposed widening of I-77 with High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes.  This is an over $500m project which will use a Public Private Partnership (P3) to finance the project and subject residents of North Mecklenburg and Iredell counties to the first-ever highway tolls in the state.

  1. check the level of the current grade where the proposed lanes are to be built. It is very close to the finish road level. I thought the specification for this was to be changed to meet NCDOT minimum standards for this type of road?
