Comments to Oregon DOT Reveal Concerns Over I-205 Tolls

As part of its study on the potential of tolls in the Portland area, the Oregon Department of Transportation will consider 4,644 public comments, the majority of which express opposition to the tolls.

ODOT had called for comments on the potential use of tolls on a stretch of Interstate 205, which wraps around the east side of the Portland metropolitan area and extends into Washington state. The segment in question is near the Abernethy Bridge, which carries the interstate over the Willamette River. The bridge is about 12 miles south of downtown Portland.
