NY Thruway Poised to Convert Plaza to AET

Times Herald-Record reports, “After five years of on-again, off-again planning, the New York State Thruway Authority is now full-speed ahead on switching to all-electronic tolling at the Harriman toll plaza. The switch will coincide with the state Department of Transportation’s $150 million reconfiguration of Route 17′s Exit 131 . . . ‘We’re in the process of designing our portion of the project and expect to solicit bids later this year,’ said Jennifer Givner, a Thruway Authority spokeswoman.”
