Exclamation New Jersey to Double Toll Existing Toll Roads

Article: New Jersey to Double Toll Existing Toll Roads

Toll boothA key lawmaker thinks paying just one toll might not be enough for drivers on the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway. WCBS-TV reports that state Senate President Richard Codey is proposing new toll lanes be added to these existing toll roads, creating special double-toll lanes within a toll road. Those willing to pay only $1.70 would sit in congestion from Exit 8A to Exit 6 on the Turnpike, for example, but those who hand over $3.40 could enjoy the chance of a quicker journey in newly constructed lanes.

"My idea is to let a private company come in," Codey told WCBS. "There will be signs telling where there's congestion and where there's not and you make a decision and then continue on the old part of the road where there's no toll increase or take that new section for a while where there would be an increase."

Codey's plan would be to start with a demonstration project before expanding to cover more of the state's toll roads with extra tolls. Source
