Let’s stop supporting Mount Hope Bridge

If you do not agree to continue paying a high toll on the Newport Pell Bridge to cover the maintenance cost of millions of dollars a year on the Mount Hope Bridge so those who use the Mount Hope Bridge can continue to cross free, then I hope you attend the informative meeting of the Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority at the Jamestown library on Monday, Oct. 17, at 7 p.m.

This and other meetings are to determine if a toll should be reinstated on the Mount Hope Bridge at about 52 cents each way to cover the cost of maintenance of that bridge.
