HARRISBURG, Pa. — The public can now share their opinions in person to PennDOT on the proposal to toll the popular I-83 South Bridge that carries traffic to and from Harrisburg. It's part of a larger plan that would also toll 8 other bridges in the state.

PennDOT is holding an open house November 9 from 1-7 pm at the Harrisburg Mall on 3501 Paxton St on the first floor across from Wells Fargo Bank. A second open house will then take place November 10 from 1-7 pm at the Penn Harris Hotel on 1150 Camp Hill Bypass in Camp Hill.

PennDOT is also accepting public comments on the project online through November 24 at 11:59 pm.
