Travel Advisory

PA Turnpike Reminds Motorists of 5% Toll Increase

More drivers with unpaid tolls now risk having vehicle registrations suspended under new law

January 25, 2023 –  The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PA Turnpike) reminds drivers that a toll increase approved last year has taken effect across the highway system on Jan. 8 at 12:01 a.m. The Commission approved a 5% increase for E-ZPass and Toll By Plate customers on Aug. 2, 2022. E-ZPass drivers will continue to get the lowest rates, saving nearly 60% versus Toll By Plate. To check toll rates for travel on the PA Turnpike, visit www.paturnpike.com/toll-calculator.

The PA Turnpike also reminds drivers that Act 112 — a measure signed into law on Nov. 3, 2022 — is now in effect. It enables the PA Turnpike to work with the PA Department of Transportation (PennDOT) to suspend motor-vehicle registrations of owners with four or more overdue Toll By Plate invoices or $250 or more in unpaid tolls or outstanding toll invoices. Before Act 112, registration suspensions required a higher threshold of six past-due toll invoices or $500 or more in unpaid tolls.

Read About Ongoing I-476 Bridge Construction in the Poconos

Construction began in April 2022 for the total reconstruction and widening of the Pennsylvania Turnpike's Northeastern Extension (I-476) north of Clump Road (milepost A38) to the Quakertown Interchange (MP 44). The existing four-lane highway (74' wide) will be reconstructed to accommodate six 12-foot travel lanes with 12-foot left and right shoulders and a 2' median barrier (122' wide). The project will also include the removal and replacement of five mainline bridges. The project corridor traverses Salford Township in Montgomery County and West Rockhill and Milford Townships in Bucks County.

The project also includes the replacement of the following bridges over the Turnpike, prior to the Turnpike widening.

  • Upper Ridge Road Bridge (State Route 4033)
    Construction completed – new bridge open to traffic as of 6/30/2021
  • Trumbauersville Road Bridge (State Route 4051)
    Construction completed – new bridge open to traffic as of 11/22/2017

Typical Roadway Sections
