Opinions Differ On Where Road Dollars go

A brand new poll finds most respondents in North Carolina think their area doesn't get a fair share of road money from the state.

Figures from Public Policy shows 55 percent of those polled statewide felt that way while 23 percent think their section does get enough money to fix and maintain roads.

Figures also show 22 percent of residents in North Carolina's biggest cities think eastern Carolina gets too much money. But some local residents of Jacksonville think otherwise. They say the area is booming due to military expansion and think they get the short end of the stick.

Many residents we spoke to say they think bigger cities in North Carolina gets most of the money for roads.

    Pamlico in some areas is in desperate need of road work done, and not just filling in pot holes so it just breaks open again. I've blown out a tired on the back roads here and have a friend do the same on another road because of the road breaking off on the edge and our tires busting. I agree with taxpayer, the roads to the west do seem a lot better. I was on 64 Sunday and could not believe the conditions in one area on a main highway like that going 64 east. Horrible1

    I have been from east to west across NC, the roads in the west are in much better shape than those here in the east. They are always repaving some part of I-40. Please fix our roads in the east, especially all the potholes that have popped up lately. Firetower between Corey Rd. and Arlington (near Basils)needs resurfacing to even it out.
