RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina’s first modern-day toll road opened this month, and state officials are already discussing plans for a new one.

The state Department of Transportation released an environmental assessment report Friday detailing plans for work along the 182 miles of Interstate 95 that runs from the Virginia state line to South Carolina. The report recommends $4.4 billion worth of work, including widening parts of the Interstate to six and eight lanes, raising and rebuilding bridges and making repairs to pavement.

Current funding only covers about 10 percent of that cost, though, so the report recommends adding tolls to the interstate to help make up the difference. The state would need permission from the Federal Highway Administration before it can add tolls.
