Leavenworth Officials Back New Missouri River Bridge but Oppose Tolling

Leavenworth Times reports, “Leavenworth city commissioners offered support [on July 26] for the concept of a new Missouri River bridge. But they voted not to support tolling to fund the new bridge.” The report adds that the Kansas Department of Transportation is studying “a possible replacement of the Centennial Bridge in Leavenworth. The study proposes replacing the existing two-lane bridge with a four-lane bridge,” and is considering “a possible $2 toll fee for vehicles with transponders, or K-TAG devices, and possibly a $4 fee for vehicles without the devices.”
