Cashless Tolling Construction Project

Project Background

The Thruway Authority modernized its 570-mile transportation system by converting to cashless tolling. Cashless tolling reduces congestion, improves traffic flow, is better for the environment, and allows for non-stop travel on New York’s toll roads, bridges and tunnels.

The Thruway converted to an entirely cashless tolling system in November 2020.

Cashless Tolling Constructors, LLC was awarded the Design-Build contract, with work beginning in fall 2019.

Traffic Information and Traveler Advisories

Several commuter park and ride lots maintained by the Thruway Authority have closed or relocated. Signage is posted at the impacted locations.
