MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WKRG) — Alabama Lieutenant Governor Will Ainsworth posted a video to social media Monday morning expressing his opposition to a toll for the proposed Mobile River Bridge and Bayway project.
Ainsworth sits on the Alabama Toll Road, Bridge, and Tunnel Authority. He said if it comes to a vote, he will be proud to vote “no.”
His statement comes just weeks after Governor Ivey said tolls on the new bridge are a necessity.
