AUSTIN (KXAN) — Rates on toll roads managed by the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority are increasing by 2.2 percent at the start of the new year.

If you drive the full length of 183A Toll in northwest Austin, it’ll now cost you 6 cents more with an electronic tag. However, the price varies at each toll plaza. The Lakeline Mainline will see an increase from 55 cents to 56 cents whereas the Park Street Mainline will see an increase from $1.48 to $1.51.

The increase will add an extra 5 cents to the cost of a full-length trip on 290 Toll.

Drivers taking the 71 Toll Lane will spend an extra 2 cents on the total cost of a trip from Farm Market 973 to State Highway 130.

Since the MoPac Express Lane is a variable toll, the rate increase does not apply to that toll.

The new rate goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2018. CTRMA has increased rates on all of its tolls in the Austin-area every year for the past three years. 

The Texas Department of Transportation says its toll rates are also going up by 1 to 3 cents depending on the road you’re using. On SH 130, for segments 1-4, drivers with an electronic tag will see a 3 cent increase from $1.77 to $1.80. Their new toll rates also go into effect on Jan. 1.
