Plan To Target Trucks With Tolls

Rhode Island officials are looking at a plan to impose tolls on large commercial trucks to fund a billion-dollar bridge reconstruction program.  The user fee on trucks would be collected electronically and is expected to generate around 100-million-dollars a year.  The money would be used to repay a 700-million-dollar bond that would be used for bridge repair.  Most of the money would go towards bridge repairs at the Routes Six and Ten connector, with the rest earmarked for other troubled bridges around the state.
