Pennsylvania Truckers Object to Bridge Tolling Plan

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is moving forward with its controversial plan to consider charging tolls — possibly $1 or $2 — on as many as 10 major bridges in the state.

But representatives from the trucking industry told the state Senate Transportation Committee tolls would hurt their industry.

PennDOT Secretary Yassmin Gramian told a Senate panel on Jan. 25 the list of potential bridge candidates to be tolled will be announced in mid-February.
