Thinking About Tolling: Keys to Success
While toll roads have been around in several east coast states since the early 1950s, many states have avoided tolling, due to federal restrictions on interstate highway tolling. But today, the combination of improved technology and decreasing federal funds for states has led DOTs and other agencies to more actively consider tolling their roads and bridges. Our panelists have experienced this evolution from both the DOT and consulting sides, bringing insight into how to make tolling work successfully.
This webinar is focused on helping agencies who have an interest in tolling but would like to know more about:
- Why tolling is a worthy tool in the infrastructure funding toolbox
- What federal law says about tolling restrictions and exceptions
- How to evaluate tolling, from policy discussions to organizational changes to undertaking a feasibility study
- How some state DOTs have successfully started tolling for the first time
