States Petitioning Congress for Toll Roads

States Petitioning Congress for Toll Roads

It's no secret that the country's infrastructure is literally crumbling, and that the Highway fund is going to be empty within a year's time. In order to try to pick up the slack, states that do not currently have congressional authorization to run toll roads are petitioning for the right. 

I-95 in Virginia and I-70 in Missouri have already been approved for toll projects. While these sorts of developments are no fun, something has to be done, as we will have a $2 Trillion backlog by 2035 if no action is taken.
