New Ferry Toll Booths Going In

The state Department of Transportation began installing toll booths at several ferry terminals Monday.

The booths are being placed at the Cherry Branch, Minnesott Beach and Bayview ferry terminals.

A mandate from the General Assembly in 2011 required the ferry division to increase its annual toll revenue by 5-million dollars by increasing and implementing tolls.

The three routes getting the toll booths are currently free, but tolls will be collected beginning July first.
