Triangle Expressway toll going up New Year's Day
Posted December 30, 2014
Raleigh, N.C. — A toll increase on the Triangle Expressway will take effect Thursday, state transportation officials announced Tuesday.
The increase will be 14 cents for N.C. Quick Pass customers and 22 cents for bill-by-mail customers who travel the 17.4 miles between N.C. Highway 147 at Interstate 40 and the N.C. Highway 55 Bypass in Holly Springs.
The new cost of the trip will be $2.91 for Quick Pass customers and $4.45 for bill-by-mail customers.
The toll increase was planned as part of the funding of the expressway. Revenue raised through tolls will pay off bonds sold to build the $1 billion road, officials said.
Plans are underway to add two interchanges along the expressway. One will be at Old Holly Springs/Apex Road in Holly Springs; the other will be at Morrisville Parkway in western Cary.
