§17-17-8. Termination of privilege to erect and maintain toll
bridge; toll rates.
When a certificate of incorporation is hereafter obtained
for the erection of a toll bridge, if the work be not commenced
within one year from the date thereof, or be not completed within
five years after such commencement, or if, after its completion,
there be an abandonment of the bridge, or a failure for three
successive years to keep it in good order, in each of these cases
the privilege granted by such certificate shall cease. There may
be charged and collected on persons and things passing over any
such bridge such reasonable tolls as the corporation may, by
resolution, from time to time prescribe, subject, however, at all
times to the control of the public service commission.
