1959-1961 Highway Budget

Record #:
The North Carolina Highway Commission was authorized to spend over $197 million for maintenance and construction of highways in the state during the next biennium ending in 1961. This amounted to a 2.3% increase from the previous year. Salary increases and administrative costs, along with other non-highway projects such as the state prison management, will take up a bulk of the revenue earned from gasoline, motor, and other taxes.
