According to the CJ, the Bridge Authority is planning to spend another $97,000 for more toll studies. Apparently, tolling every interstate bridge in the region won't cover the $4.1 Billion price tag.
We've got some ideas. How about a "Drive-Thru" toll? A % of every Happy Meal goes toward building Spaghetti Junction. Or maybe corporate sponsors! Just imagine the CJ Editorial supporting the new 23-lane wide Olive Garden Spaghetti Junction.
Our favorite line in the article:
"Steve Schultz, the bi-state authority's executive director, said he doesn't know what Wilbur Smith will be studying, but he expects the results will be helpful."
WHAT! Seriously? They expect great things from a study THEY ordered, but know nothing about. The "openness" and "transparency" touting mayoral candidates should be all over this.
