Pennsylvania Turnpike Toll Increase

The Pennsylvania Turnpike, increasing by 5% starting this weekend.

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission has increased tolls annually since 2009, in part because of a state law requiring the commission to provide annual payments to PennDOT to help fund projects and transit operations statewide.

Turnpike spokesperson also saying they’re working on improvements for the toll road too.

“Our system is more than 80 years old and needs a lot of investment as far as improvements at new interchanges widening from 4 to 6 lane. So the revenue from the total increase is really for transportation improvements.

Leaving tolls unpaid could result in suspension of your vehicle registration. Pennsylvania’s dropping the suspension threshold from 500 bucks to $250 this year.
