Gov. Pat McCrory is scheduled to visit Salisbury today with two events planned – one at the N.C. Transportation Museum and another at Livingstone College.

McCrory and other officials will visit the Transportation Museum at 12:30 p.m. for a tour of the facility and a roundtable discussion about two, $1.5 billion bond projects he has proposed. The governor’s Livingstone visit will officially begin at 2:30 p.m. in Bear Plaza. An announcement of his trip only states the Livingstone College event is open to the public.

The governor’s N.C. Transportation Museum visit is scheduled to focus on bond packages called Connect NC. Cultural Resources Secretary Susan Kluttz, Transportation Secretary Tony Tata and State Budget Director Lee Roberts are also scheduled to attend, according to a news release. One of the projects included in the bond package is a $15 million update to the Transportation Museum in Spencer. The bond projects were included in the governor’s budget, introduced into the legislature earlier this month.

Kluttz, the former mayor of Salisbury, will also participate in McCrory’s Livingstone visit, according to an announcement. The event is to honor the men’s basketball team and is called “Champions Day.” It will be at Bear Plaza, the front of the campus, or Varick Auditorium if it rains.

Livingstone’s basketball team participated in the NCAA Division II tournament in March, after beating Winston-Salem State in February to win its second straight CIAA Tournament title.
