When the Wilmington MPO-TAC (Saffo-Barfield-Thompson triumvirate) was trying to shove the (pie in the)Skyway Bridge down our throats, the state was going to pony up $50 million/year (or so) to subsidize the difference between the tolls and the cost of the billion dollar boodoggle.
Replace the POS Cape Fear Memorial for half the amount of the Skyway bridge, let the state toss in the $50 mil-a year that was earmarked and we have a bridge with no toll that doesn't stop traffic.
The past Wilmingto area MPO-TAC has done this area a great disservice by trying to make the Skyway work without considering alternates. We've lost years for a much needed road because of this.
