New Hampshire DOT chief: State driving toward cashless tolls

The state is moving toward removing more toll booths in favor of cashless tolls or a mix of high-speed lanes and fewer booths, the state’s roads chief said Wednesday.

“Really, our desire is to move toward all-electronic tolling,” Department of Transportation Commissioner Victoria Sheehan told business leaders at an economic development and infrastructure summit at the Manchester Country Club.

“It’s been very successful in Massachusetts,” she said, referring to the removal of toll booths along the Massachusetts Turnpike. “The cost of maintaining toll facilities is extremely expensive.”
