TRIANGLE – Commuters using the Triangle Expressway will pay more in 2014 as the rates increased nearly five percent Wednesday to pay off the bond that helped build it.
The increase was scheduled to take place and isn’t a change in the plan. But, now commuters traveling on the road every day will pay an extra $67.60 per year.
The first phase of the project opened in December 2011; phase two opened in August 2012; the third phase opened December 2012.
With the discounted rate using an NC Quick Pass, the rate to travel the full length one way is $2.77 up from $2.64.
