Wyoming Senate advances proposal SF73 for I-80 tolls

A bill halfway through the Wyoming Legislature would move forward with plans to add tolls along Interstate 80 in the state.

Officials with the Wyoming Department of Transportation say that something needs to be done to help the agency address the $40 million shortfall just to maintain the highway. Agency officials say I-80 also needs additional climbing lanes, more truck parking and the reconstruction of its interchange with I-25 in Cheyenne.
