Feds reject tolls on I-80 in Pa.



Published: Tue, April 6, 2010 @ 3:30 p.m.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Two top state lawmakers say the federal government is rejecting Pennsylvania’s application to turn Interstate 80 into a toll highway.

House Transportation Committee Chairman Joe Markosek and Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Jake Corman said today the decision slashes $450 million-plus per year from state funding for highways, bridges and mass transit systems.

Gov. Ed Rendell is expected to discuss the matter during a late-afternoon news conference, but his office has not commented on the decision yet.

Without money from tolling, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission has said it could continue borrowing the money for three more years as it currently does.
