Possible I-80 toll zones revealed

August 6, 2008 8:46:36 AM PDT
The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission says it's narrowed the locations for nine toll collection sites along Interstate 80 to 20 zones. The commission released the list at a Harrisburg news conference on Wednesday.

Officials say the final sites will be selected to maximize revenue and minimize the number of cars seeking alternative routes.

They're also touting a plan to limit how many local drivers will have to pay tolls. The proposal would let passenger vehicles with E-ZPass transponders go through the first toll plaza for free.

A decision about exactly where to put the nine tolling plazas is expected sometime this fall.
