Triangle's Thriving Growth Relies on Robust Transportation Infrastructure Investment, Smith Anderson’s Pete Marino Tells WRAL
While the Triangle’s transportation infrastructure has so far supported the region's growth, continued investment and development are crucial due to the influx of businesses and residents, Smith Anderson construction attorney Pete Marino told WRAL in the article, “Triangle Transportation Infrastructure is Critical to Steady Growth.”
The region’s past investment in transportation infrastructure has generally kept up with demand. However, with an ongoing influx of businesses and residents to the region, sustained focus and increased investment in our transportation infrastructure needs of the future is critical. The WRAL article quotes Pete citing the expansion of Raleigh-Durham International Airport, significant road construction efforts and rail corridor improvements as part of the Triangle’s forward-looking approach to meeting the transportation infrastructure needs of this growing region so that we can continue to attract new businesses and residents.
Pete is chair of the Freeways Division at the Triangle’s Regional Transportation Alliance and co-chair of Smith Anderson's Real Estate Development Group.
