It’s going to cost a little more to ride on the Triangle Expressway in western Wake County starting New Year’s Day.
Toll rates will go up an average of 3.5% on Wednesday. Drivers with an NC Quick Pass will pay 11 cents more, or $3.48, to drive the entire 17.4-mile length of the Triangle Expressway between N.C. 147 at Interstate 40 in Research Triangle Park and the N.C. 55 Bypass near Holly Springs. Drivers without a pass, who receive a bill in the mail, will pay $5.33, or 16 cents more, to make that trip.
Shorter trips cost less. Similar toll increases also take effect Wednesday on the Monroe Expressway near Charlotte.
