North Texas tollway costs increasing in July

Drivers will soon pay more to use North Texas’ toll roads.

The North Texas Tollway Authority said the toll rate for drivers with a toll tag is going up from 19 cents per mile to 20 cents per mile.

Drivers who do not have a toll tag and pay higher rates will also see a significant increase.

The new rates go into effect in July.

The NTTA said the extra money will help repay a multi-billion-dollar loan used to build the toll road system. 

Some will also be used on improvements over the next five years.
