Gov. Deval Patrick pushes all-electronic tolling for Massachusetts Turnpike, ending need for toll collectors
The administration of Gov. Deval L. Patrick is moving forward on a $250 million plan to demolish toll plazas, eliminate the positions of toll collectors and install all-electronic tolling on the Massachusetts Turnpike by 2017. Officials are pushing all-electronic tolling while also working on a separate plan to reinstate tolls for passenger vehicles between Exits 1 and 6 on the western end of the turnpike, starting Oct. 15.
