Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon last week said any plan to implement tolls on Interstate 70 to fund its rebuilding should go before voters.
Nixon did not offer an opinion on whether he supports tolling on the road. The Missouri Department of Transportation is seeking legislative authority to convert the Interstate into a toll road and enter into a public-private partnership to oversee a rebuilding and expansion.
Tolls would cover the price tag for the project that ranges between $2 billion and $4 billion, depending on how many lanes are added.
