    Another Pennsylvania Turnpike toll increase takes effect this weekend at 12:01 a.m. Sunday.

    A bill passed in 2007 to provide new funding for roads, bridges and mass transit statewide called for a big toll hike of 25 percent a year ago and smaller increases each year after that, turnpike spokesman Carl DeFebo said.

    The upcoming increase is 3 percent, with cash tolls rounded up to the next nickel.

    For an average motorist, the most frequently paid toll on the turnpike system is 95 cents and that will increase to $1 for a cash toll.
