A year after raising its toll rates 5%, Pennsylvania’s Turnpike commission announced a 6% increase for 2017.

Revenue from this increase will fund a 10-year spending plan, which invests more than $5.77 billion in the system in the coming decade – a large part of which will support ongoing total reconstruction and widening projects, Turnpike Chairman Sean Logan said in a statement. Turnpike CEO Mark Compton said annual rate increases are likely for decades.

Ever-increasing toll costs will force drivers onto secondary roadways, increasing congestion and maintenance costs on those roadways, as well as creating safety concerns with increased traffic,” Kevin Stewart, the new CEO of the Pennsylvania Motor Truck Association, told Transport Topics.
