Let’s Finish the Fight to Stop I-77 Tolls!
Thanks to all of the generous donors who have contributed to our legal battle to stop the unfair and needless tolling of I-77 in Lake Norman! We are making progress but need your help to finish the fight! Here is what is happening:
- Raised more than $30,000 and filed an injunction to stop the P3 HOT lanes
- Received recognition from State and National organizations for our effort
- Over 5000 citizens supporting us with donations, petitions, and/or moral support
- Received favorable commentary on our chances of winning an injunction to stop the tolls
Now it’s crunch time as we enter into the next critical phase of our legal battle. We need to raise an additional $30,000 by February 28th to adequately fund our legal battle thru the end of March. Please help us to continue the fight with your tax deductable donation today. We believe we have a strong case and that this battle to stop the tolls on I-77 can be won — but we can’t do it without your help. How much should you donate? The NC DOT forecasts tolls to be as high as $21 a day for commuters who drive the 27 miles of tolled lanes at rush hour. What will a week, month, or year cost you in tolls? Don’t commute? What are the indirect costs of congestion? How will tolls affect our region’s property values and the quality of our lives?
Thank you in advance for caring about the future of our community and playing an instrumental role in stopping the tolls on I-77 through your donation today. You may donate online at https://wideni77.org/donate/ or mail your tax free contribution to WidenI77, PO Box 792 Cornelius, NC 28031-0792.
We can’t do it without you! Ask your friends to help!
