PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) - Officials with the City of Portsmouth held a State of the City address Wednesday, headed by Mayor Kenny Wright.
WAVY.com asked Wright what the city's plan is regarding the fight against tolls at the Downtown and Midtown tunnels. Officials announced last month they would be investing $50,000 in the legal battle to avoid tolls.
"Tolls is a big issue and we have all rallied together. We're supporting the lawsuit and we'll see. We'll have our day in court on May first and hopefully we'll get a positive outcome," Wright told WAVY.com.
The tolls could cost drivers between $1 and $1.84 each way through the tunnels as soon as next year.
Following a briefing by Wright on the future of the city, Wright led attendees on a walk in light of his goal to lose weight.
