To fund improvements,turnpike raises its rates
HARRISBURG, PA -- Tolls increased on the Pennsylvania Turnpike on Sunday.
Tolls for passenger vehicles rose 1.8 cents per mile to a new rate of 5.9 cents per mile. Commercial vehicles increased an average of 5.3 cents per mile.
The increase matches the rate of inflation over the 13 years since the last increase in 1991.
Pennsylvania Turnpike CEO Joseph G. Brimmeier said the increase will allow the turnpike commission to double its rate of capital spending over the next 10 years to fund infrastructure improvements along the aging east-west "Main Line" and Northeastern Extension. More than $1.3 billion has been allocated to rebuild the turnpike roadway at a cost of about $10 million per mile.
