Oklahoma drivers can expect to pay more on turnpikes in 2018

OKLAHOMA CITY –  Drivers across Oklahoma can expect to pay more on some turnpikes next year.

On Tuesday, the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority voted to increase the tolls of some routes by 2.5 percent in January.

Experts predict that the increase will cost drivers between 5 cents and 10 cents more on their trip.

As you may remember, tolls were increased on the state’s turnpikes in March by about 12 percent. At that time, turnpike officials warned that rates would increase again in 2018 and in 2019.

Officials say another 2.5 percent increase is expected in 2019.
