Meeting set on Sakonnet tolls

Sakonnet River Bridge

Portsmouth residents will learn more about the latest push to do away with tolls on the Sakonnet River Bridge on Wednesday night.

A pair of bills in the General Assembly would create the Rhode Island Transportation Infrastructure Fund.

They would eliminate the need for a toll on the bridge, and instead reallocate current revenue in the state.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at Scampi Restaurant on Park Avenue.
