Pennsylvania Turnpike toll hike Sunday

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Tolls are going up on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

Motorists will pay an extra 5 percent starting Sunday at 12:01 a.m. The higher rates apply to both cash customers and those with E-ZPass.

Turnpike officials say the increase will help reduce a state transportation funding shortfall. The money also will help pay to reconstruct the roadway and widen it from four lanes to six.
