North Carolina Tolling Analysis Shows Taxpayers Would Pay Double Estimated Project Costs
February 27, 2012
A new analysis of North Carolina's I-95 tolling plan by the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) shows that if I-95 were to be rebuilt and converted to a toll road, taxpayers would pay about $30 billion over 40 years. This is nearly double the $4.4 billion in reconstruction costs plus the $10 billion to $12 billion in ongoing lifecycle maintenance of the roadway.
