The Merrimack Tolls on the Everett Turnpike Are Going Away in January
If you drive through the Merrimack tolls on your daily commute, your life is about to get a whole lot easier!
According to WMUR, the exit 11 tolls were installed 30 years ago and generate more than $1 million dollars a year.
But today, after much back and forth, a transportation commission agreed that it makes sense to get rid of the tolls.
The general consensus is that back in the day when they were making these decisions, they weren't envisioning what it was going to look like decades down the road. And what it looks like is unnecessary burden for Merrimack residents, the news station stated.
People are tired of the traffic that it causes and the cost.
Starting January 1st, 2020, according to WMUR, the toll booths will still be there but motorists will be able to drive through without paying.
All hail the transportation commission! Now we just need to get rid of the Hampton tolls :)
