ABC7 Traffic Center
Tolls go up on five Hudson Valley bridges Monday
HIGHLAND, N.Y. -- Motorists who travel over the five Hudson River bridges operated by the New York State Bridge Authority are now forking over more money for tolls.
The agency is reminding motorists that the basic passenger car toll increased from $1 to $1.25 for E-ZPass customers and $1.50 for cash customers as of 12:01 a.m. Monday.
Bridge Authority officials say E-ZPass customers get a break because it costs less to collect tolls electronically.
The agency announced in October that it planned to raise tolls in early 2012. Officials say tolls need to be increased to pay for more than $100 million in capital projects.
