A press conference was held today by local state House Republicans regarding a plan to toll Route 422.
The press conference was held in the 422 Business Center in Oaks, adjacent to the expressway. Reps. 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."
At a presentation Monday, Joseph Hoeffel, a Montgomery County Commissioner and the head of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, helped present the proposal to the Governor's Transportation Funding Commission.
Watch the attached video to see what the state House Republicans from local districts had to say on the tolling issue. The plan would impose a $2.65 one-way toll on the roadway from Douglassville to Route 202.
