ALDOT to discuss I-10 tolls Wednesday morning


MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Tolls will be a hot topic today as the Director of the Alabama Department of Transportation is in town this morning to discuss the latest proposal on the new I-10 river bridge.  For the first time, we’re getting an idea of how much traveling on this yet-to-be-built roadway will cost drivers and families that will use it. According to a report in, Director John Cooper said ALDOT will propose a toll plan that includes a $90 monthly pass for frequent users.  There’s also a $6 one-way charge for people who only use it occasionally.

This is part of a plan that will be unveiled during a news conference this morning at 10 here in Mobile.  Toll opposition has grown since the idea was floated months ago.  This includes a Facebook group started by State Auditor Jim Zeigler with thousands of people signed up.
