State House Republicans are raising questions about a report presented in Harrisburg on Monday on a proposal to turn the heavily travelled and often heavily congested southern section of U.S. 422 into a toll road.
At a presentation Monday, Democrat Joseph Hoeffel, a Montgomery County Commissioner who is also the head of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, helped present the proposal to the Governor's Transportation Funding Commission.
Thursday's news conference was held at the 422 Business Center in Oaks, adjacent to the expressway. State Represantatives. Warren Kampf (R-Chester/Montgomery), David Maloney (R-Berks), Marcy Toepel (R-Montgomery) and Mike Vereb (R-Montgomery) all spoke out against what Vereb called the "Hoeffel Tolling Plan."
The plan would impose a $2.65 one-way toll on the roadway from Route 202 in Chesterbrook to Douglassville.
What do you think?
Should Route 422 be tolled? Do roads east of Route 202 get more funding and attention in your opinion?
