Highway commission studying toll roads


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – The Arkansas Highway Commission has invested in a study that revealed tolls could pay for an interstate's widening.

The report shows that the money would be enough to build a third lane in each direction on Interstate 40 between North Little Rock and West Memphis.

However, federal law bans charging tolls on interstates, except under limited circumstances. Officials say the study was only done out of curiosity.

As of now, there are no plans to create toll roads.

"Folks don't need to be concerned that we're going to go out and put up toll booths on interstate 40 right now. That's not going to happen. This was just a study to examine the feasibility of whether or not a toll collection for one lane would pay for the work and it will not," said Danny Straessle, AHTD spokesman.
