Opponents of tolls on I-77 in the Charlotte region are meeting on May 3.

Widen I-77, a citizens group advocating widening I-77 with general purpose lanes, will host a town hall–style forum at Charles Mack Citizen Center, 215 Main St. in Mooresville. The  group will present a response to the I-77 Advisory Group meetings regarding options for ending the contract and modifying the I-77 toll project.

“The conclusion of the Advisory Group meetings and the announcement by Governor Cooper that he will either modify or cancel the contract this year gives us reason for cautious optimism,” said Widen I-77 leader Kurt Naas. “But success depends on continued public engagement.”

The group will provide information on how toll opponents can get involved to join the campaign to stop the toll contract.

The meeting will consist of a 20-minute presentation followed by a question-and-answer session.
