Pa. Republicans file suit against PennDOT bridge tolling plan


HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — Pennsylvania House GOP leaders are firing back against PennDOT’s plan to potentially add tolls to nine bridges in Pennsylvania, including the I-83 South Bridge in Harrisburg.

Republicans have now filed suit in Commonwealth Court. The suit alleges PennDOT did not undergo a fair review process before announcing the plan for Pennsylvania bridges.

“We need to propose to the government that we need a revaluation of how we’ll be able to fix these bridges,” Rep. Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland) said.

If the lawsuit is successful, all work and planning on this bridge toll project would have to stop pending further legal action.
