The governor says the investments into Delaware's network of roads will bring thousands of jobs to the state, helping a struggling construction industry that was hit hard during the economic downturn.
"With this plan, we'd borrow responsibly for half the cost," Markell says. "But to ensure we don't put the whole burden on future generations, the plan also includes a 10 cent increase in our motor fuel tax, which hasnât gone up in 20 years despite rising construction costs."
