    Motorists will see higher prices when paying to travel the Pennsylvania Turnpike next year.

    Turnpike tolls will increase by 6 percent after midnight on Jan. 7, 2017, a price jump largely attributed to the cost of rebuilding and widening the road system.

    The most common toll for a passenger vehicle will increase from $1.16 to $1.23 for E-ZPass customers and from $1.80 to $1.95 for cash customers. The most common toll for a tractor-trailer will increase from $9.59 to $10.17 for E-ZPass customers and from $13.60 to $14.45 for cash customers.

    Turnpike officials say revenues will fund a recently approved 10-year spending plan. The commission expects annual increases of up to 6 percent until 2044.

    Toll rates won't increase next year on the Delaware River Bridge cashless tolling point northeast of Philadelphia.
