Transportation Funding Package
The Duportail Bridge project is currently included in the proposed Transportation Funding package. The proposed increased revenues are to be dedicated to restoring the appropriate funding level to operate and maintain the existing roads and highways. The proposal also provides a package of road and highway system improvements needed to restore and improve the proper and desirable functioning of the road and highway network.

The City has developed an FAQ on the proposal and regarding gas tax.
