Toll Hike For GSP And Turnpike Proposed

A toll hike may be coming for the Garden State Parkway and New Jersey Turnpike, and officials won’t say by how much. 

The proposed hike, which was a late addition to the New Jersey Turnpike Authority’s agenda, comes after officials said that the Turnpike Authority’s 2020 $1.8 billion budget would not require a toll increase to fund it.

The last toll hike on the Garden State Parkway and Turnpike came in 2012, when drivers were hit with a 53% increase, a move which helped finance the widening of certain parts of the GSP and Turnpike.

The increased revenue expected from the proposed toll hikes are believed to go towards funding for GSP and Turnpike upgrade projects, as well as Senate President Sweeney’s plan to give $125 million from the Turnpike Authority to NJ Transit.

All we know so far about these proposed toll hikes are that public hearings are scheduled to take place on March 18 and 19 for a new spending program.

  1. I want an audit and an accounting of where every dime that this toll hike generates goes to. I still think it will go to pay raises for the management. Worse than that the money will be going to pet projects for the politically connected friends of the Democrats in Trenton
