I voted for other, although tolls was my second choice. Spending on infrastructure has sky rocketed over the years with seemingly little regard to expenses. Reigning in unnecessary spending on projects will relax some of the budget concerns. As for increase monies for funding, some sort of vehicle tax may be an option.

A hike in state gas taxes is the most amenable method. If tolls are used the law should stipulate ALL toll money go to maintenance of a particular bridge or bridges or specific roadway. Too often toll fees go into a general fund for other uses.

I choose other to explain. Gas tax but the tax needs to be distributed according to current usage. There is a chart that shows usage and the last time I looked roads and bridges were not getting their share of the funding, extra funding was going to subsidize rail and mass transit. Also Electric Cars use the roads and bridges so an extra tax needs to be assessed to their licensing. Also need to look at cars that get like 30 mpg as they are not paying their fair share.
