WV Parkways Authority announce public meetings on possible toll increases

Posted:
(WVVA) -

The West Virginia Parkways Authority is holding public meetings on a proposal to increase tolls on the turnpike.

On April 5, members of the Parkways Authority accepted a resolution to secure revenue bonds not to exceed $500,000,000 for "operating and maintenance expenses, renewal and replacement requirements and capital needs" through 2050. 

The plan would double the toll rate from $2 to $4 per plaza. It also includes a one-time early enrollment program for West Virginia residents which would give huge discounts on passenger vehicles for calendar years 2019, 2020, and 2021. To qualify for the special E-ZPass® rate, you'd need to enroll in the "Single Fee Discount Program" by December 31.
