LARKSPUR (KCBS) – The Golden Gate Bridge District is grappling with a ballooning deficit. Because of a series of major capital projects, it is facing a shortfall of $140 million over the next five years.
There has already been internal belt-tightening, so it may take a toll increase to balance the books.
The toll talk, transit officials stressed, was in the very earliest of stages.
“There’s no time line, there’s no amount,” said District spokeswoman Mary Currie.
Still, toll talk was expected in the coming months as the Board addressed the deficit.
