Workers Remove The Last Obsolete NY Thruway Toll Plaza

New York Governor Governor Kathy Hochul (D) announced yesterday that Cashless Tolling Constructors, LLC, is now removing the last obsolete tollbooths from the New York State Thruway, and characterized the work as “a historic and significant milestone in the $355 million Cashless Tolling Design-Build Project.” After demolishing the Exit 60 (Westfield) facility, the company will have completed the elimination of 52 toll plazas, including 230 individual toll booths, in less than a year. Exit realignment and road reconstruction is continuing at interchanges across the thruway and is on schedule to be completed by the end of October, weather permitting.
