Toll collection at Merrimack's Exit 12 to stop next month
“We will probably stop the toll collection in the evening hours on that day, and there will be signage notifying the traveling public,” said William Watson, planning and community assistance administrator with the DOT.
The Exit 12 toll closure will result in an annual revenue loss of about $600,000, according to officials. However, the gas tax increase could potentially collect about $32 million a year, or about $588 million over the next two decades to be used to finish the Interstate 93 expansion from Salem to Manchester, along with other highway and bridge maintenance.
“I think anyone would be pleased,” she said. “I think we have to be happy with what we get.”
With three exits in Merrimack, removing one toll is a step in the right direction, Harrington said.
