TURNPIKE TOLLS TO BE PRIVATIZED

State officials confirm a new plan that will result in the toll collection system on the New Jersey Turnpike to fall into the hands of a private company.  The state says about 700 unionized toll workers would be replaced under this proposal as a cost-cutting move.  A report authorized by the state showed that New Jersey could save over $40 million annually if it privatized its toll collection system.  It’s also possible that some routine highway maintenance may also fall into the private sector.
