Chipley City Council Opposing a Proposed Toll Road

The Chipley City Council has gone on record as opposing a proposed toll road linking Dothan with Interstate-10 and the new Bay County airport.

City manager Jim Morris says no formal vote was taken at a work session Thursday night, but council members authorized Mayor Linda Cain to draft a letter to the Washington County commission opposing the project.

The county commission has scheduled another public hearing on the project for the Monday evening.

The meeting is set for 5 p.m. in the Washington County Commission chambers.

More than 200 people attended a similar session hosted by the commission just last month.

A group called Focus 2000 wants to build a super-highway between Dothan and the Bay County airport in the next five years.

The work would be financed through a bond issue.
