Act Today to Support the Mid-Currituck Bridge Project
The Mid-Currituck Bridge project has been at risk of being eliminated by the Senate. Governor McCrory has now introduced a bill that would weaken the chances of the bridge being constructed. We need your support to make sure that the Mid-Currituck Bridge remains a viable project.
Representative Paul Tine is expected to file an amendment to House Bill 817 – Strategic Transportation Investments. Please call or write members of the House Finance Committee today, Wednesday, May 1, 2013. Representative Tine also asks for people to attend the meeting on Thursday, May 2, at 8:30 a.m. to show support for the amendment to restore the Mid-Currituck Bridge project.
A list and contact information for all House Finance Committee members is available here.
Key points to address include:
- The Mid-Currituck Bridge is a shovel-ready project.
- The project has an Approved Environmental Impact Statement
- Record of Decision Authorizing Construction is imminent
- The addition of the bridge would lead to significant economic development in Currituck County.
- Without the Mid-Currituck Bridge, there could be significant negative impact on the tourism industry in the Outer Banks
- The addition of the bridge would provide significant improvements to public safety by providing an alternative route for hurricane or other emergency evacuations.
Please call House Finance Committee Members today to show your support, and attend the House Finance Committee Meeting in Raleigh at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, May, 2, 2013 if you are available.
