David Crabtree (Anchor): Congressman David Price visited part of what is going to become the state's first toll road. The Triangle Expressway is nearing the end of construction.

Rep. Price: This is absolutely a model for what needs to go on in the rest of the country. We need to start building again in this country. We need to get our infrastructure in place, the backbone of our economy.

Crabtree: Rep. Price also said road projects like this one help the economy by offering more jobs. More than a thousand workers worked on this section of the highway. It is slated to open in December. Drivers will pay about 15 cents a mile to travel on the road.
