(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indiana's Roads Task Force may recommend the state begin tolling interstate highways.

Previous debates over how to pay for Indiana's infrastructure needs focused on fuel taxes, alternative fuel vehicle levies, and fees based on the number of miles someone drives. The discussion broadened at the second-to-last roads task force meeting. Engineer Steven Davidson recommends Indiana should explore tolling every interstate highway.

"Now that would be implemented over a number of years as the interstate is either expanded, upgraded, rehabilitated." Davidson said.

Task force co-chair Senator Luke Kenley says tolling is a realistic possibility.

"Certainly tolling would be the only way you'll get any revenue out of somebody who's from out of state who didn't stop to buy gas." said Kenley.

The task force will meet once more to issue its recommendation.
