NEW HANOVER COUNTY -- The Cape Fear Skyway Bridge will cost close to $1 billion if construction is ever approved. To get a "go" on the plan the North Carolina Board of Transportation is meeting right now to find a way to pay for the bridge. Fifty-five percent of the cost would be paid by tolls. That still leaves a funding gap of more than $400 million. But the Department of Transportation has a plan. Senior Transportation Planner Mike Koslosky said, "One of the options that we will discuss today is to ask the general assembly to subsidize a portion of the gap in order to construct the project." Stay tuned to NewsChannel 3 to see if the transportation advisory committee was able to agree on a resolution to ask for state funding.
