The Bottom Line: Maintaining Bridges With Or Without Tolls

Apr 4, 2014

A state representative says he's outlived one Sakonnet River Bridges in his lifetime. He's concerned about whether the state will find the funds to maintain the current one.

Providence Business News Editor Mark Murphy joins Rhode Island Public Radio's Dave Fallon for our weekly business segment, The Bottom Line.

This week, Dave and Mark talk with Newport state representative Peter Martin. They're talking about maintaining Newport's bridges, so vital to the area's residents, whether the state allows tolls or not. Martin says he's in favor of tolls, even though that's been an unpopular position at times.
