Tolls on the Pennsylvania Turnpike are going up again next year.
The turnpike commission says it’s approved increases of 12-percent for cash-paying motorists and 2-percent for those who use the electronic E-ZPass system.
The January toll boost will be the sixth annual increase since the turnpike began transferring $450-million a year to PennDOT, as required by a 2007 law. Many lawmakers hoped to substantially reduce those payments as a part of a comprehensive transportation funding plan, but negotiations collapsed and the bill was left in limbo as lawmakers left for their summer break.
Turnpike CEO Mark Compton says the increases are needed to cover extensive infrastructure repairs.
Turnpike officials say E-ZPass users are charged less because the electronic tolls are cheaper and faster than paying a turnpike employee to collect cash payments.
