Expert: Toll roads won’t work in Idaho

Toll roads are among the top proposals supported by the Obama Administration for increasing transportation funding, transportation consultant Tom Warne told Gov. Butch Otter’s transportation task force, but, he said, “There are places like Idaho and Utah where there’s probably limited opportunity for toll roads, let’s just be honest. … That’s just not going to work.”

Overall, he said, “The most important message I can share with any state leaders is that they cannot rely on the federal government to solve their transportation problems. Each state must take control of its own transportation future.”
