Turnpike rates to increase 25 percent on Jan. 1
It will cost more to use the Pennsylvania Turnpike in January because the state needs the extra toll income to fix nonturnpike bridges and highways and to subsidize mass transit systems such as BARTA and SEPTA.

The interesting thing about the creation of the PT Commission is hidden within all of the paper at the beginning is a clause that allows for the PT to stop charging tolls once the PT is finalized. As we all can see this will never happen and now there is a move to privitize the PT. Interesting move to privitize a highway that eventually "was" suppose to be without tolls. I say stop with the new construction and simply maintain as we do all the other roadways within the Commonwealth. Yes, I know this state has some of the worst roads in the nation, but maintainance of a free roadway is a different issue than the collection of tolls and toll increases.

This belongs in the "I can't make this stuff up" column. How do these idiots get these jobs and why do we allow this to continue?
Will one of the nontoll roads they repair be 176? Since that is half finished, maybe they need the additional tolls to complete the circle jerk we endured with them fixing it all summer. Kudos must go for that road having the best looking shoulders in the county!

Well,one of the reasons for the poor turnpike roads to Morgantown is the trash trucks going to one of the area landfills(too many too name). Yep,trash all day and night.
