New York's Thruway Tolls Set To Rise

Despite rising revenues, New York's Thruway Authority says fare hikes needed to pay for projects.

"The Thruway Authority is proposing to hike tolls 25 percent for most passenger cars and 35 percent for trucks."

"Motorists drove more miles than ever on the Thruway last year, paying $12.4 million more in tolls than the year before for their trips."

"But while the nearly 3 percent growth in tolls made it a good year compared with others this decade, Thruway Authority officials say a toll hike planned to go into effect in mid-May still is necessary to fund a six-year road and canal reconstruction plan."
