Governor Holcomb pledges ‘data driven’ review of possible Indiana interstate tolls

Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb said Thursday he plans to be “data driven” as he weighs expanded tolling on the state’s interstate highways.

A study ordered by the Indiana General Assembly concluded last week that a statewide toll system could yield tens of billions of dollars for road projects in the coming decades, helping offsetting a projected drop in fuel tax revenue.

Holcomb, a Republican, has until next December to decide if he wants to pursue all-electronic interstate tolls – the method used on the Interstate 65 bridges connecting Clark County, Ind., and Louisville.
