Bill would eliminate all ferry tolls

Published: Friday, March 29, 2013 at 03:43 PM.

Others, such as Oriental town Commissioner Larry Summers, a vocal protest organizer, contend that the ferry is an extension of N.C. 306 and tolls constitute an illegal tax.

Proposed fees for the Cherry Branch-Minnesott Beach route include a $4 per car toll for the typical vehicle as well as $1 per passenger. A $150 annual commuter fee would be available.

Public comments to the Department of Transportation are accepted through Tuesday.
