Governor Sununu Calls on Executive Council to End Merrimack Tolls
Concord, NH – Tomorrow, as members of the Executive Council work to complete their phase of the State's Ten Year Transportation Improvement Plan, Governor Sununu issued the following statement:
"After meeting with Representative Hinch and Merrimack officials last week, it is clear that we need to remove the cost of the Merrimack Exit 11 tolls," said Governor Chris Sununu. "As the Executive Council finalizes their Ten Year Plan, I call on them to seriously consider this request and zero out the Exit 11 tolls once and for all without raising tolls or taxes elsewhere. The residents of Merrimack have borne a disproportionate share of our turnpike tolls for too long, and restoring fairness to the system is the right thing to do."
