Plan To Study If Toll Roads Make Sense In Michigan Moves Ahead In Legislature

A bill to look into possible toll roads in Michigan is headed to the state Senate.

The Transportation and Infrastructure Committee has approved legislation that calls for a feasibility study on putting tolls on certain state highways.

“Over the years, the lawmakers have looked at this, but never pulled the trigger,” WWJ Lansing Bureau Chief Tim Skubick reported.

At a hearing Wednesday, State Senator Tom Barrett, a Republican from Charlotte, stressed that studying the issue doesn’t mean that the state has to move forward.
