GREENWICH TWP., Pa. — The Pennsylvania Senate has approved a bill that would halt PennDOT's plans to toll several bridges in the state, including the I-78 Lenhartsville bridge in Greenwich Township.
The bill would require PennDOT to start over with its plans and advertise the proposed tolls, seek public comment, and get approval from the governor and legislature.
PennDOT said it wants to toll up to nine bridges that are in need of major repairs. It plans to use the money to fund construction.
The new legislation may have a short life because Gov. Tom Wolf said he opposes it, and the Senate lacks a veto-proof majority.
