Thruway Authority Abandons Proposal to Increase Tolls on Truck Traffic

Major Spring Snowstorm Hits Montana

It seems as though Governor Andrew Cuomo has abandoned plans to raise highway tolls for trucks and other commercial vehicles. 

The proposal would have seen a toll hike of 45 percent which would have helped the Thruway Authority close a 90 million dollar shortfall in the budget.  Instead, a new proposal has been drawn up that will help the budget issue with out an increase in tolls for at least the next 3 years. Currently, a 5 -axle truck traveling from Albany to Buffalo on the I-90 has to pay $65.15.  If the 45 percent toll increase would have gone through, those truck companies would be paying $94.45 to make the same trip!!
