Pennsylvania Turnpike tolls to increase on Sunday

The Associated Press

HARRISBURG — It will soon cost more to travel the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

A state audit released Tuesday warns that plans for the Pennsylvania Turnpike to raise tolls repeatedly in the coming years may not be sustainable, leaving the 550-mile road network at financial risk.

A 6 percent increase takes effect Sunday for cash and E-ZPass motorists along the 550-mile highway.

The turnpike commission says the money will help fund projects to rebuild and widen the turnpike as well as support Pennsylvania’s public transportation needs.

The commission says it generated $1 billion in annual toll revenue from more than 198 million vehicles a year during the 2016 fiscal year.
