The Texas Transportation Commission voted unanimously to pause increases in toll rates for the Central Texas Turnpike System at its Sept. 22 meeting. The pause will begin Jan. 1.

The tolled portions of the Central Texas Turnpike include SH 130, MoPac, SH 45 North and SH 45 Southeast. More information about the tolled highways can be found through the Texas Department of Transportation.

Toll prices on these roads were set to increase by 8.3% in 2023, according to meeting documents. This increase was “unusually high,” said Tracey Johnson, the TxDOT Toll Operations Division director, at the meeting.

Pausing the rate increases will give the commission an opportunity to review its toll rate escalation policy and rate adjustment options, Johnson said.

Toll rates typically increase annually unless paused by the commission. This year, rates for the Central Texas Turnpike increased by 5.3%.
