AUSTIN (KXAN) – Following the announcement of Central Texas toll road SH 130’s multi-billion dollar bankruptcy, a top North Carolina transportation official traveled to Texas on Monday to meet with the Texas Department of Transportation.

North Carolina Department of Transportation Secretary Nick Tennyson said he met with TxDOT to get more information on the company that built a portion of Central Texas toll road SH 130 and then went bankrupt last week.

We are here “to come and learn the context of the project SH 130 and how that might affect or might have an impact on the project we are carrying out in North Carolina,” Tennyson said, adding that he had no more details.

According to media reports, North Carolina leaders are concerned about their toll-road deal with Cintra, the company behind SH 130. North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory tasked Tennyson with reviewing all aspects of the contract for the toll lanes being built on I-77. In North Carolina, a subsidiary of Cintra called I-77 Mobility Partners is constructing toll lanes between Charlotte and Mooresville, according to a WSOC report.

A TxDOT spokesperson would not comment on the meeting. TxDOT and local leaders have said the Texas highway bankruptcy will not impact Texas taxpayers. The toll road was privately financed and the debts belong to SH 130 Concession Co., which is the entity created by Cintra and Zachary American Infrastructure to construct the 41-mile stretch of highway between Seguin and Mustang Ridge. The concession company did receive a $430 million loan from the federal government, and payments on that are set to begin next year, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
