JACKSONVILLE, Fl. - Drivers could have to pay toll fees to use interstates like I-95 and I-10.
The White House is pushing a transportation bill that would allow all states to decide whether to use tolls on federal roadways.
A federal ban currently does not allow states to charge toll fees on interstate highways in most cases.
The $302 billion transportation bill is part of the Grow America Act and would give states more flexibility to use the toll revenues for highway repairs.
The plan would give states the right to choose whether to build tolls, but states would still need the Department of Transportation’s approval.
If the plan was approved and individual states decided to implement tolls, they would be allowed to change toll prices depending on the time of day and traffic conditions.
The plan will now go to Congress to be voted on.
