Trucks to pay 5 percent more on Kansas Turnpike

By Land Line staff | 11/7/2012

Commercial vehicles with five- to nine axles will pay an average of 5 percent more on the Kansas Turnpike starting in February 2013.

The Kansas Turnpike Authority says the extra cash will help fund an ongoing project to replace decks on all 348 of the bridges the agency maintains.

Motorists paying cash will pay about 10 percent more than they do now once the increase takes effect Feb. 1, 2013. K-TAG users will see an average 5 percent increase.

The 5 percent increase for commercial vehicles applies to cash and K-TAG customers, according to the turnpike authority.

The agency says modest toll increases every three years are easier than deferring increases until a larger one is needed.
