The Wilson City Council is repeating its opposition to tolls along Interstate 95.
The Wilson Daily Times reports the council revisited its 2006 vote against toll booths, taken when the North Carolina Legislature was just considering charging people to drive on I-95.
Earlier this year, the state Department of Transportation announced it would spend more than $4 billion widening and improving the 182 miles of I-95 in North Carolina, then charge tolls along the entire route to pay for the work.
Officials in Wilson say tolls would hurt locals who use the interstate and reduce the amount of tourism in the area.
Wilson City Manager Grant Goings says other cities along I-95 are also planning to oppose the new tolls.
