CONCORD -- The Governor’s Advisory Commission on Intermodal Transportation will host a public hearing on proposed toll increases Monday, Dec. 4 in Portsmouth.

The hearing will be held in the Levenson Room at Portsmouth Public Library, 175 Parrott Ave., starting at 6 p.m.

Those unable to attend may submit written testimony to: William E. Watson, Bureau of Planning and Community Assistance, N.H. Department of Transportation, Box 483, Concord 03302-0483.

The state Department of Transportation has been directed by the Intermodal Transportation commission, comprised primarily of executive councilors, to prepare a toll increase plan for consideration at the Dec. 6 meeting of the Governor and Executive Council.

Under the proposed toll structure, passenger vehicles with NH E-ZPass would see a 35 cent increase in tolls at the Hampton, Hooksett, and Bedford tolls, and an 18 cent increase at the Dover, Rochester, Hampton side tolls and Hooksett ramp tolls. 

Cash paying passenger vehicles would pay 50 cents more per toll transaction in Hampton, Hooksett, and Bedford, and an additional 25 cents per transaction in Dover, Rochester, and Hampton side tolls. The Merrimack Exit 10 and 11 ramps would see no change with the tolls being eliminated in April 2020.
