I-40 Tolls to Fund the Trans-Tennessee Corridor?

Did you sit up and take notice like I did at the comment in today's Tennessean regarding legislators floating ideas like creating I-40 toll lanes to help fund the West Tennessee portion of the "NAFTA superhighway," which I prefer to call the Trans-Tennessee Corridor after the controversial Trans-Texas Corridor (a plan to take land, give no-bid contracts to foreign companies, and build 4,000 miles of "supertollways")? Will Tennessee be tolling today's interstate drivers in a futile effort to fund the building of tomorrow's supertollways, which will only funnel more public dollars to private interests?
