Governor Pat McCrory called for the state's department of transportation to implement better design and planning of roads and highways during the Highway Safety Symposium Monday in Concord.

Concord city council members will vote this week on whether to give a local flight training center a $56,527  tax rebate over three years to expand. FlyRight is a training center located across the street from the Concord Regional Airport. The company plans to invest $5 million to build a second flight simulator. Concord City Manager Brian Hiatt says he hopes this will translate to more business for the airport.
