If you were planning to go from New Jersey to Pennsylvania this weekend, you must keep in mind that the PA Turnpike will have tolls increased by 6% this Sunday. This raise will become common in the next few years as state officials plan to make this a yearly plan until 2044, with increases ranging from 3% to 6% annually.
Fortunately, the turnpike tolling plaza will become cashless after this 2nd of January’s midnight. After that point, a camera will snap a picture of your license plate and send the bill to your home. Hopefully, this will provide a constant flow in traffic, without any bustles at tolling points.
The toll-by-plate program is the first of its kind, being conducted at the Delaware bridge, and is part of a larger $1.4 billion dollar plan to connect Interstate 95 to the turnpike, according to the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission. Bills will arrive in your mail starting with the 25th of January.
