Bridge tolls going up Jan. 30

Story from today's Kingston Times: Tolls on the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge and four more spans across the Hudson will rise next month, a move officials at the New York State Bridge Authority say is necessary to pay for maintenance on the aging crossings. Starting at midnight on Jan. 30, tolls for the Kingston-Rhinecliff, Rip Van Winkle, Mid-Hudson, Newburgh-Beacon and Bear Mountain bridges will rise by 50 cents for cash customers and users of the E-Z Pass commuter discount program (currently cash customers pay $1 while users of the discount program pay 50 cents). Regular E-Z Pass users will see tolls rise by 25 cents to $1.25.
