Drivers Hope Natcher Tolls are Lifted

By  | 

For the first time since the William H. Natcher Parkway opened in 1972, getting to the end of it will be free, possibly as soon as next year.
That's when the bonds will be paid and the state may remove the toll booths.

"I sure hope so, it would save me time and money."

The tolls have not changed in the more than three decades the road has been opened. It costs you 90-cents each way.

But the downside is that lifting the tolls will mean about 70 people who work on the James Audubon and William H. Natcher Parkways will be without jobs.

State transportation officials say no decision has been made on when the tolls will be lifted.
