SATURDAY: LAST DAY FOR LOWER PARKWAY TOLLS

Saturday is the last day to enjoy lower tolls on the Garden State Parkway and New Jersey Turnpike.  Tolls are going up for the second time in three years on New Year’s Day and motorists will be asked to cough up 50 percent more in toll revenues.  The New Jersey Turnpike Authority says it needs $7 billion to pay for various improvements on both highways over the next ten years.  The new tolls will be charged Sunday morning, beginning at 6:30am.
