WPRI-TV News provides an update on RhodeWorks, Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo’s $4.7 billion proposal “for a surge of infrastructure projects funded in part by a new toll on trucks.” The report adds, “RIDOT has estimated large trucks will pay $45 million a year in tolls on up to 14 bridges around the state once the system is up and running, providing additional funds for bridge repairs.” The station also reports, “It will be at least another year before trucks start paying tolls.”
