PORTSMOUTH — State officials will visit these towns twice next week to hear testimony regarding the impact of tolls on the East Bay area.
The hearings were scheduled after many protested that the toll plan was included in the state budget before any economic impact study had been conducted.
The first meeting is at Portsmouth High School Auditorium on Monday, Dec. 3, at 7 p.m. The second meeting is at Tiverton High School Auditorium on Tuesday, Dec. 4 at 7 p.m.
Officials from the Rhode Island Department of Transportation, Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Auhority, and other agencies will be present to hear public testimony about the proposed toll on the Sakonnet River Bridge.
