Most of the tolls on the 138-mile-long Massachusetts
Turnpike may be eliminated before long.
The Associated Press reports that the board of the
Turnpike Authority this week proposed dropping the tolls everywhere except in
the Boston metro area.
A vote on the proposal is set for next month.
Massachusetts residents were promised that when the original
toll road bonds were paid off, the tolls would be dropped. However, the bonds
were paid off 23 years ago.
