Maryland tolls to rise starting Tuesday
BALTIMORE (AP) — Tolls are going up at Maryland Transportation Authority facilities statewide.
Motorists who use bridges, tunnels and highways will start paying more on Tuesday. Transportation officials have said the hikes are needed to pay for repairs and projects. The new tolls are expected to generate $90 million in their first full year.
Protests to the original proposals prompted officials to reduce the hikes at the Chesapeake Bay and the Gov. Harry W. Nice bridges to $4 for two-axle vehicles starting on Tuesday and to $6 in July 2013. Motorists were paying $2.50 on the Bay bridge and $3 on the Nice bridge.
The monthly $1.50 E-ZPass fee will be waived on accounts that use toll facilities three or more times per month.
