RITBA Delays Decision on Bridge Tolls

No vote Wednesday morning on a proposed toll hike for the Newport Bridge.

The Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority met Wednesday morning and decided to delay making a decision.

The board needs to come up with a way to make money to maintain the bridge.

This delay will allow them to talk with the state about alternatives, including the possibility of tolls on 95.

The group plans to discuss the proposal at their next meeting in February.
