MOORESVILLE, NC (WBTV) -
It was an informational meeting about plans to install toll lanes on I-77. Some residents say the discussion was one way.
"The one thing that upsets me was that public officials have done nothing to get feedback from citizens" says Tim Scott, who attended the meeting last night in Mooresville.
State transportation officials say the Lake Norman Regional Transportation Commission held the meeting Wednesday night in Mooresville. Some drivers say they weren't being heard.
"Not willing to address people's questions" says Vallee Vuvak. "It was clear that they were just trying to sell us something."
Most drivers say they want to see I-77 widened. Officials with the N.C. Department of Transportation say to pay for the project, they want to install toll lanes in the area between north of Uptown and exit 36 in Mooresville.
Vuvak and others don't want toll lanes.
"I'm against it because our tax money goes to pay for these roads and it's the responsibility of N.C D-O-T and our government to manage the budget so they can pay for the roads."
Scott, a Cornelius resident, says "they're pushing this program and tolls are not the answer.
Opponents of the project say they're taking their opposition to Raleigh to meet with the Speaker of the House.
"Hell no. Hell no we don't want the tolls," says Scott.
