Opposition to Tolling in Handful of Missouri Counties Mounts

The Daily Star-Journal reports on opposition to the proposed tolling of I-70 that has arisen among local officials and citizens in several west central Missouri counties, noting that, “Randy White, executive director, Pioneer Trails Regional Planning Commission, said he thought talk of interstate tolls ended after ‘an outcry along the I-70 corridor’ about two years ago. ‘That’s not the case. . . . Tolling is not DOA,’ he told the [Missouri Highway 13 Corridor Coalition]. . . . He said the state requested an eight-month extension of authorization ‘to do tolling’ on the state’s federal highways.”
