John McAlpine, is an engineer for Michael Waltrip racing and a small business owner.  He was there and says NASCAR icon Humpy Wheeler and others addressed the board with their concerns.

Opponents say the project will hurt business, including racing. Despite building opposition, the NCDOT plans to construct the toll lanes between Mooresville and Charlotte.

North Carolina Senator Jeff Tarte is expected to talk toll lanes tomorrow when he addresses members of the Lake Norman chamber.
