Damaged Ohio Toll Booths Won't Be Rebuilt
May 27, 2000
Toll booths that were damaged in a fiery tractor-trailer crash near the Ohio border will not be rebuilt, a Turnpike Commission spokesman has told the Associated Press.
A truck driver was killed in the wreck last week that damaged four booths.
The Turnpike is moving its westernmost toll booths to suburban Pittsburgh and was planning before the accident to replace the booths near Enon Valley with a coin-collecting system. Turnpike officials say this should improve traffic flow in about two years and trips from the intersection to any exti before the Ohio border will be free.
