Turnpike toll rates in Oklahoma will go up again next month. The 2.5% jump follows a 12% hike in March. Jack Damrill with the Turnpike Authority says it’s the second of a planned phase-in of increases to fund the Driving Forward initiative. The initiative will fund the Gilcrease toll road and an expansion of the Turner Turnpike between Tulsa and Bristow.
As an example of the new prices, the PikePass rate on the Turner between Oklahoma City and Tulsa will rise from $4.40 to $4.50, and the cash rate going to $4.75 from $4.50. The hike will take effect in the first week of January.
