They say it's because of the PTC board reorganization, but announcing toll increases doesn't go well with news about increasing losses of toll revenue due to nonpayment of Toll by Plate bills, especially when "higher fees" is one of the reasons listed.

From the looks of the photos, it seems the new Warrendale gantry is already up.

Yes, they had the new gantry up (but not operational yet) when we passed through the area a few weeks ago. There was also a good amount of paving completed in the reconstruction area just west of there (MP 28-31).

Also, paving was in progress for the short realignments being constructed for the MP 102-109 reconstruction.

However, there weren't many signs of activity yet at the MP 126-131 reconstruction. Maybe some equipment staging but that's it. That project should start picking up soon.

PennDOT - District 6 News: PA Turnpike to Close Kumry Road for Construction in Milford Township

This definitely should be related to the current widening on I-476 up to PA 663.

Yeah I would not even think about making a post saying that today.  I know the situation much better and differently now.  Something called maturity is important.

Why is this just accepted and not top priority, fuck Bud Shuster.

MASTERNC:
Another year, another toll increase. Of course they try to spin it by comparing the rate to a bunch of short distance toll roads. Other than the NJ Turnpike, you canít spin this is the most expensive long distance road in the nation.
