Pennsylvania Turnpike’s Findlay Connector to go ‘cashless’
A section of the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Allegheny and Washington counties known as the Findlay Connector will no longer accept cash payments starting April 29, the Turnpike Commission said Friday.
E-ZPass will not be affected by the change. Drivers without E-ZPass will receive a bill in the mail after a camera takes a photo of their license plate.
Ramp toll plazas will be removed.
Findlay Connector trips between Exits 1-2 and Exits 4-6 will become free starting April 29.
Last spring, the commission converted the turnpike’s Beaver Valley Expressway to cashless tolling.
“Agencies across the country are introducing cashless systems, and we owe it to customers to continue to use the best technology available in every facet of our operations,” commission CEO Mark Compton said in a statement. “We manage more than 550 miles of roadway serving rural areas as well as major urban centers, so we want to be sure cashless tolling makes sense for all of our customers.”
