I'm fine with them. I'm fully in favor of building new roads that are funded by toll revenue from the very beginning. I'd love a toll road that would allow you to avoid the perpetual mess on I-40 from W/S to the RDU airport. Just name the price — it's gotta be better than guessing what Greensboro, Durham, and Raleigh traffic will be like on any given day.
I don't know about making I-95 a toll road, though. I guess my problem with it is that taxpayers have been funding the upkeep of this existing road for many years, then suddenly, access to their investment in a means of transportation becomes restricted... not exactly fair, I think.
But, if 30 percent of the traffic on I-95 consists of commercial trucks, then why not let them help pay for the road's upkeep?
An idea: why not allow NC/VA residents to apply for a toll pass, where they won't have to pay the toll, leaving the toll to be paid for by non residents and commercial vehicles?
