Task Force Looks at Tolling I-5 Crossing

The Oregonian reports that tolls for a new Columbia Crossing could be as high as $5/day for peak period crossings. Outside of peak hours the rate would be significantly lower.

Will the driving public accept this kind of toll structure for a new bridge?

In news elsewhere, IBM has apparently patented the idea of variable rate tolling. Has the task force calculated a license feed into their rates?
