Pa. toll increases planned
HARRISBURG — Tolls on the Pennsylvania Turnpike will go up 6% next year for both E-ZPass users and cash customers.
Turnpike officials announced Tuesday that the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission had approved the increase slated to start Jan. 5. The increase will begin on all sections and extensions except for three “cashless” toll facilities in western Pennsylvania.
Officials said the increase is needed to meet escalating debt service costs and to maintain aging roads.
