Mass Turnpike Tolls May Rise for Some Trips, and One Lawmaker Is Pleased.

WWLP News  (Springfield) reports, “Drivers hopping on the Massachusetts Turnpike in Newton will pay more to head into Boston under proposed toll rates, an added cost that some hope will reduce traffic in the city. Sen. Cynthia Stone Creem, a Newton Democrat, said she was pleased that drives on the turnpike from West Newton to Newton Corner will be newly tolled with the hope that it would reduce cut-through traffic.”
