Proposed Toll Road Meeting

A group called Focus 2000 proposing a toll-road from Highway 231 in Alabama to Interstate-10 in Florida met with people in Washington County for a public hearing Monday night.

The hearing was arranged to answer questions and get further details the proposed road.

It was announced at the beginning that no vote would be taken.

However after much discontent from county residents and some of the commissioners, a motion was made and the project was turned down by a vote of 3-to-2.

Luther Strange, attorney for Focus 2000, says the project will continue on despite last nights vote.
