The New Jersey Turnpike Authority voted on Wednesday (May 28) to increase tolls on both the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway.
AP News reported that the board’s 7-0 vote came despite pleas from many to delay it along with approval for a $24 billion construction plan that the hike will fund.
The New Jersey Turnpike tolls will rise by 36% with a 27% increase on the Garden State Parkway.
The toll hikes will go into effect on September 13 with the Turnpike Authority adjusting it annually starting in 2022.
