RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The N.C. Department of Transportation is conducting another round of public hearings about proposed tolls on its ferry routes.

After hearings on Tuesday in Knotts Island and Wednesday in Washington, the NCDOT has a hearing scheduled for Thursday at Pamlico Community College in Grantsboro.

Next week’s hearings are scheduled for Morehead City, Ocrocoke and Hatteras. Another hearing is slated for Southport on Feb. 18.

State lawmakers last year mandated that new ferry acquisitions be funded through tolling, advertising and concessions.

All money collected will go only toward new ferry vessels.
