No Thruway toll increase

The Thruway Authority had decided not to increase truck tolls on the Thruway as was first reported several months ago. Back in May it was proposed to hike truck tolls by 45%.

Instead, according to a story by Teri Weaver in The Post-Standard today, they have passed “a budget that calls for 361 job eliminations, scaling back worker benefits, shedding bad debt and saving, in the long term, hundreds of millions at the financially troubled agency.”

Get ready folks, it’s just beginning.
