Senate Votes To Extend Toll Roads

The Senate gave tentative approval on Wednesday to expanding the number of toll road projects in the state, which will expand from three to nine the number of toll-roads that can be studied and built. In addition, the Senate approved a provision to accelerate construction of the 2.4 mile Bonner Bridge over Oregon Inlet on the Outer Banks at an estimated cost of $130 million to $150 million. It is not planned as a toll road, but was included in the legislation because of its increasingly unsafe condition.
