So when will tolling begin? Mindy Peterson, a spokeswoman for the downtown crossing and the RiverLink tolling system, told the CJ that a start date hasn’t been determined. But she said tolls could be levied on the Lincoln and Kennedy bridges before the East End bridge opens.

“They’ve dragged their feet so much that the tolls are going to happen before they do anything,” Mark Sanders, vice president of the (East Spring Street) neighborhood association, said.
