Abstract:
The 1987 Transportation Corridor Official Map Act (Map Act) may save North Carolina money on future highways, but many landowners pay the price. Any development located in the path of major Map Act projects are restricted or frozen – many for decades. Currently, there is a lawsuit in the North Carolina Supreme Court to decide whether property of Map Act owners was unconstitutionally seized by the Department of Transportation (DOT) without compensation. In all, 24 planned roads affect property owners in 18 counties throughout the state.

An investigation by the Transportation Board of Investigation and Research has found that there are existing regional differences in class freight rates and they were not justified in differences in cost of rendering services to various regions, composition of traffic, or any other conditions. It has been suggested that given the similarities, the country as a whole establish a uniform classification of freight and scale of class rates for transportation by railroad.
