This morning the Oregionial Editorial Board weighed in, opposing tolling 99W where it would parallel the new bypass.

the phrase quoted in this morning’s O from a county commissioner describing the potential toll road bypass around Newberg and Dundee:
“That’s just not going to fly,” said Yamhill County Commissioner Leslie Lewis, one of the leading local officials trying to get the bypass built. “We need to have a real conversation about how to fund this thing. I’m hoping a train wreck will be avoided, and we’ll get to have that meaningful conversation.”
Seems like ODOT still needs to do some more groundwork on support for this one :-)
