Chamber President Bill Russell wrote in a letter to members that Mercator Advisors will be reviewing all possible alternatives to the contract. This includes everything from outright cancelation to possible discount strategies for frequent users of the toll lanes.

The Chamber’s position is that toll lanes are bad for the lake area and will not relieve congestion, but only make it worse.

Drivers in the construction area have been plagued by debris flying into cars recently. Our news partner Fox 46 reported last week that Representative John Bradford sent a crate of metal debris to the governor trying to make a statement.
