TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Drivers on the Kansas Turnpike will start paying more on Feb. 1.
The Kansas Turnpike Authority announced Monday that cash rates for cars and light trucks will increase an average of 10 percent. Rates for K-TAG users will increase an average of 5 percent.
Drivers of large commercial vehicles will pay about 5 percent more, whether they pay cash or use the electronic K-TAG.
The Turnpike Authority said in a news release Monday the increased revenue will pay for future capital needs, including deck replacements for some of the turnpike's 348 bridges.
No tax dollars are used to maintain the turnpike.
