And Who Says The Federal Government Never Gets It Right?

Score one for the Feds, with their absolutely correct decision not to allow I80 to be turned into a toll road. Story link HERE. This was a bad idea for many reasons, including...

...it does nothing to but encourage continued waste and duplication between PennDOT and the Turnpike Commission.
...I80 is a critical transportation link across the state, particularly in Central & Western PA; you basically can't get around in some parts of rural PA without hoping on I80.
...this would mean that there would be no non-toll route between eastern & western PA.

Now Gov. Rendell & the do-nothing Legislature have to start earning their paychecks to come up with a solution to highway maintenance that doesn't involve us paying for something we already pay for.
