SPANISH FORT, Ala (WPMI) Baldwin County legislators met with ALDOT’s Transportation Director, John Cooper in a closed door meeting Wednesday, July 10, to discuss the I-10 Mobile River Bridge & Bay way project.

Legislators say the meeting was a listening session and an opportunity to learn more about the project.

They say no updates or decisions were made about the toll in Wednesday’s meeting.

When asked about Federal funding, Cooper says he has tried to get funding from other sources including the Federal Highway Administration but hasn’t been successful.

A handful of people who are against the toll held signs saying “no tolls” and waited outside the meeting to have their voices heard.

ALDOT says more information will be released in the near future.
