The annual increase of the toll rates for the Triangle Expressway and the Monroe Expressway, will take effect Sunday, January 1, 2023.
The North Carolina Turnpike Authority Board adopted schedules of incremental annual toll rate increases for both the Triangle Expressway and Monroe Expressway based on the financing requirements for each project.
For NC Quick Pass customers with a transponder driving a Class 1 or 2-Axle vehicle, traveling the full length of the Triangle Expressway, 18.8 miles, the cost will increase 9 cents to $3.80, or 2.43 percent. For customers with a transponder driving a Class 1 or 2-Axle vehicle, traveling the full length of the Monroe Expressway, 19.8 miles, the cost will increase 5 cents to $2.77, or 1.84 percent.
Toll revenue is used to pay off bonds sold to fund the construction of the projects, as well as fund the overall road maintenance including repairs, mowing and winter weather preparation and response.
