Cash isn’t always king. That’s especially true if you don’t have a Pike Pass in Oklahoma. Toll prices are going up for cash customers by 2.5% on July 15th, according to the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority.
This hike is the third and final increase of a 17 percent toll increase to help pay for the Driving Forward initiative to make the state’s highways safer. The $1.1 billion initiative was announced in 2015. It funds major turnpike expansion projects throughout the state.
Cash customers will pay anywhere from a nickel to a quarter more.
The Authority says the increase will not affect 78% of drivers because they have a Pike Pass.
