Jackson Hole, WY Opinion: No toll for I-80

Once again, a bill to invoke a toll on traffic using I-80 failed to win the approval of Wyoming’s legislators last week. The Joint Transportation, Highways and Military Affairs Committee had filed the bill for consideration.

The idea has been cast around for at least a decade now. In fact, information gathering and analysis to determine the possibility of placing a toll on Interstate 80 across southern Wyoming was conducted during 2008 and 2009, resulting in the issuance of a comprehensive report of findings in September 2009.
