Signs of Growing Interest in Tolling reports that Wisconsin transportation secretary Mark Gottlieb, talking about the state’s transportation funding controversy during a highway maintenance facility tour, remarked that tolling of interstate highways is under consideration. “We were asked to study it and we did, we are completing a study of possibly tolling on the interstate system,” Gottlieb told reporters. “But we’ll provide the legislature and governor with the information that they need to make whatever informed decision seems appropriate for the state.”

The Day (New London, CT) editorial board recently wrote, “With more states, including neighboring New York and Massachusetts, moving to using electronic tolling systems to raise cash to pay for infrastructure, it’s time Connecticut’s legislature and governor give serious consideration to this option before continued decline in highway conditions batter the state’s business climate beyond repair.”
