Lawmakers Slam Proposed Increased Tolls on Upstate Hudson River Bridges

Tolls on bridges north of Rockland County, including the Bear Mountain and the Newburgh-Beacon, could be on the rise, but when or how much is up in the air. Governor Andrew Cuomo slammed the New York State Bridge Authority which is looking to boost revenue by $22 million through increased tolls on five upstate bridges it controls. Rockland and Westchester state senator David Carlucci says the state has too many out-of-control authorities doing what they want…

The increased tolls would help fund capital improvement plans for the bridges. The other three bridges in this proposal include the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Mid-Hudson Bridge between Poughkeepsie and Highland, the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge and the Rip Van Winkle Bridge, which connects Hudson and Catskill. The Tappan Zee bridge is part of the Thruway Authority.
