Portland mayor says tolls on I-5, Hwy 26 may be inevitable

The Associated Press

PORTLAND. — Portland Mayor Charlie Hales says tolls on Oregon highways are inevitable.

He told KOIN  the money is needed for maintenance, as federal funding fades.

Hales expects tolls could be added to Highway 26 and Interstate 5 in the city. He ran into opposition from businesses and others in May when he proposed street fees for safety and maintenance.

The Oregon Department of Transportation has made several feasibility studies of tolling and also has studied a GPS-based vehicle mileage tax as a way to generate revenue.
