I am very concerned about the impact that the proposed toll increases will have on the Eastern Shore. In addition to impacting commuters, visitors and Eastern Shore residents, raising the tolls at these drastic rates will increase the cost of our goods and services. The proposed toll increase for 6-axle trucks, for example, will go from $18 to $60 in just two years.
Unfortunately, the Governor and the Maryland Department of Transportation are side-stepping the legislature and they will be the sole decision makers on how much more we will have to pay.
That makes it all the more important for you to join me in voicing your concern! Please consider attending a public hearing, writing a letter or emailing your comments to them as soon as possible!
