TRANSPORTATION SURVEY
Dear Franklin County Resident:
As you know, Transportation plays a vital role in the economic prosperity of any region. In order for an area to grow, adequate transportation must be provided to support employment centers, travel and tourism, field to market agricultural demands/needs and the movement of goods and services.

Did you know:

• Almost 60 percent of Franklin County residents commute daily to Wake County for work, mostly using US1 and US401. This means we’re dependent on these roads to keep our economy going.

• The State of North Carolina faces a $65 billion projected shortfall in transportation funds over a 25-year timeframe (from 2005-2030) based on state and federal tax revenues that determine how dollars are coming to NCDOT for transportation needs.

• Our population has grown from 30,000 people in 1980 to 56,000 today. More people means more cars and more traffic. This growth is likely to continue and we will be near 90,000 by 2030!

Because of the importance of our roadways, the State’s budget shortfall on roadway funding and our population growth, the County, Franklin County Towns and partners are developing an updated transportation plan for Franklin County.

The purpose of this plan is to identify solutions to roadway and other transportation problems and to help keep traffic in Franklin County moving!

It may take some time to fund these projects, so we need your help in deciding which types of projects should be a priority and how they should be funded.

Since roadways and other transportation facilities are such an important issue in our County to maintain our great quality of life, we need YOUR input!

Please take a few minutes to fill out the attached survey and mail back to us or return to this envelope by SEPTEMBER 14, 2007.

This survey is anonymous and the County will not have your name associated with the survey unless you want us to.

Thank you for your participation and please call Tammy Davis at (919) 496-2909 with any questions or if you wish to receive more information about this transportation plan!!!

Sincerely,
Patrick Young, Director
Franklin County Planning and Inspections

The current adminstration has dug a hole.The policy of taking money from DOT and using it to fund other programs and balance the budget is the main reason 401 hasn't been 4 laned.
