MD Forecast Includes Toll Increase

From ABC 2 . . .

The Maryland Transportation Authority has put off toll increases at the bridges and tunnels it operates for several years; soon it might be time to pay up.

‘Anytime there’s an increase on anything it hurts the pocket book that’s for sure,’ said Ed Pawlikowski of Baltimore County.

This week the MdTA presented its financial forecast to legislators in Annapolis.
