Newport Pell http://ripr.org en RI Turnpike and Bridge Authority Vote Gives Perks to E-ZPass Owners http://ripr.org/post/ri-turnpike-and-bridge-authority-vote-gives-perks-e-zpass-owners <p>The Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority approved new tolls that make crossing the Sakonnet and Newport Pell bridges cheaper for drivers who own a Rhode Island E-ZPass.</p><p>Having that E-ZPass means paying a $.75 toll on the Sakonnet, while drivers without an E-ZPass will pay $5.25. It also allows owners to make an unlimited number of trips across either the Sakonnet or Newport bridges in one day, and only be charged for one round trip.</p><p></p> Wed, 17 Apr 2013 20:42:06 +0000 Catherine Welch 13745 at http://ripr.org RI Turnpike and Bridge Authority Vote Gives Perks to E-ZPass Owners
