Switch To All-Electronic Tolling Happens Friday In Massachusetts
The move to all-electronic open road toll collection in Massachusetts begins Friday.
Motorists will no longer pay cash at toll plazas along the Turnpike. Tolls will be collected electronically through a system of sensors and cameras installed on gantries over the highway.
MassDOT has spent the summer encouraging people to obtain EZ Pass transponders, and is now warning about possible traffic tie-ups as toll plazas are torn down.
WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with MassDOT Highway Administrator Thomas Tinlin.
