By Land Line staff | 1/29/2013

Truckers and motorists are reminded of new toll rates taking effect Friday, Feb. 1, on the Kansas Turnpike.

Cash and K-TAG rates for commercial vehicles will increase 5 percent on average, according to the Kansas Turnpike Authority. K-TAG rates for cars and light trucks will also increase 5 percent but cash rates for cars and light trucks will go up 10 percent, the agency says.

The agency’s board of directors approved the increase in November 2012.

New revenue will pay for future improvements, including deck replacement on the agency’s 348 bridges, according to a press release.

The 236-mile Kansas Turnpike connects Kansas City, Topeka and Wichita and extends to the Oklahoma border.
