HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania — Motorists will have to dig a bit deeper next year to pay for travel on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

The turnpike commission said Tuesday its tolls will increase by 6 percent next year, largely to repay loans taken out to help fund roadwork projects under legislation passed in 2007 and 2013.

The higher rates go into effect on Jan. 3.

The commission expects to impose annual fare increases of 3 percent to 6 percent until 2044.

The turnpike says E-ZPass customers now account for three-quarters of its traffic. E-ZPass motorists pay lower tolls.
