$8 On the Bay Bridge Soon?

Riders of Maryland’s tollways could soon be in for serious rate hikes. The Maryland Transportation Authority says it is close to raising its tolls to meet levels of other tollway systems around the nation. MTA’s board approved a preliminary plan to raise rates for state bridges, tunnels and highways by as much as three times the current levels. One hike proposal would increase the toll for the Bay Bridge from $5 to $8.
