Gov. Justice issues statement regarding Turnpike toll increase


CHARLESTON, WV - Gov. Jim Justice issued the following statement Monday:

"I have expressed my deep concerns to the West Virginia Parkways Authority regarding potential traffic delays, backups, and safety on the Turnpike as a result of the planned toll increase on January 1, 2019, and the delay in delivering the transponders in a timely manner. I urge the Parkways Authority to take immediate action and consider delaying implementation of the toll increase until these issues are resolved. All West Virginians should take this opportunity to purchase an E-ZPass and take advantage of this incredible discount. Mountaineers drive nearly for free, apply online now for year-round savings."
