Your Ride To Work Could Cost More

The cost of construction of a new bridge downstate may make our tolls here and across New York State go up.  The Mario Cuomo (former Tappan Zee) bridge is being built and scheduled to be open by August 25th but there is still no word on where the money is coming from to pay for it. There was no formal plan when construction began but now Governor Cuomo is saying it will come from Thruway tolls.

The bridge is estimated to cost $4 billion dollars, two of which will be covered through bank settlement funds. This leaves the remainder to be paid for by the statewide Thruway tolls. There hasn’t been an official word of when and if the tolls will go up, but many politicians agree that the reason for the toll system is to fix roads and infrastructure across the state.

We will have to wait and see what the Governor decides, in the meantime, I think it’s already expensive to use the Thruway.
