CHARLOTTE -- Mecklenburg County commissioners have the votes to pass a resolution asking the state to stop the Interstate 77 toll lane project.
The Department of Transportation signed a deal with a private company to move forward with the $655 million toll road. The lanes would run from Interstate 277 to to Mooresville.
Commissioner Jim Puckett told Time Warner Cable News he's spoken to five other commissioners who will support a resolution. It will be on the commission's June 16 agenda.
Gov. Pat McCrory, the former mayor of Charlotte, recently said local governments passed this proposal several years ago and it's too costly to back out now.
