UPDATE: Outrage Spreads as Margate Evacuees Return
As of 9:30 Thursday night, the toll has been waived on the Margate Bridge. A call from WPG Talk Radio 1450 morning host Harry Hurley apparently played a key role in getting the toll waived.
It’s not known how long the toll will be waived.
Facebook is catching fire as officials with the Margate Bridge are apparently charging evacuees to return to the storm-battered island.
Multiple people returning to their homes and business have taken to Facebook and Twitter complaining that they’re being charged to cross the Margate Bridge.
Shame on you, Margate Bridge. Shame on you.
If ever there was a time to waive the toll, it would be as thousands return from days away from their homes.
