CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Officials say tolls on the West Virginia Turnpike (I-77) will increase at the beginning of next year.

Charleston Gazette-Mail reported that West Virginia Parkways Authority Executive Director Jeffrey Miller told a legislative committee that the rate for most passenger vehicles will rise by five percent on Jan. 1, going from $4 to $4.25.

Miller said the E-Z Pass annual program will also see an increase from $25 annually to $26.50.

He said the proposed fee schedule for the turnpike allows up to a five percent increase every three years.

Voters approved selling up to $1.6 billion in bonds to fund the Roads to Prosperity program in 2017.
