Tolls on Pa. Turnpike will go up on Sunday

HARRISBURG, Pa. - December 30, 2009

Turnpike spokesman Carl DeFebo says a bill passed in 2007 to provide new funding for roads, bridges and mass transit statewide called for a big toll hike of 25 percent a year ago and smaller increases each year after that.

The upcoming increase is 3 percent, with cash tolls rounded up to the next nickel.

DeFebo said that means for an average motorist, the most frequently paid toll on the turnpike system is 95 cents and that will increase to $1 for a cash toll.
