Virginia lawmakers reject plan for tolls on Interstate 81

Widening Interstate 81 will be delayed by at least a year after state legislators rejected Friday a plan to pay for the improvements with tolls. “We are not authorizing tolls on I-81 this session,” Del. Chris Collins, R-Frederick County, said from Richmond, adding that language proposing tolls was removed from a bill related to I-81 improvements. “We stripped all the tolling language from the bill.”
