Tolls will return on Western Massachusetts Turnpike
Drivers traveling on the Western Massachusetts side of the turnpike will soon have to pay tolls once again.
On Tuesday evening, residents will gather in the Lee High School auditorium to discuss the implementation, which will take place between Exit 1 in West Stockbridge and Exit 6, which leads to Interstate 291 and Springfield, WBZ reports.
The tolls were removed in 1996 by former Gov. William Weld, but the decision to reinstate them took place on Oct. 15 as part of a transportation financing law.
According to authorities, the prices would stay the same as they were 1996.
