All around the New York City area and slightly north, toll booths are being removed and replaced with electronic cashless tolling. This means that anyone entering or leaving New York City in their own vehicle will need to have an E-ZPass in their vehicle to pass through these “tolls.” Passing through these tolls without an E-ZPass will create a fine to be paid for your vehicle. These will not be small fines and will be strictly enforced once all of the cashless tolling is fully installed.
This step up in modernization will greatly help the flow of traffic, the burning of fuel and commuter travel time. Governor Cuomo hopes to have this in place by the end of 2017.
This is also the beginning of a major plan to rebuild and renovate New York’s airports, roads, bridges and an expansion of the Javits Convention Center. So watch out world…New York is getting a make-over!
