Toll revenue up at West Virginia Turnpike

Aug. 08, 2014 @ 02:44 PM

BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) — Traffic on the West Virginia Turnpike has hit a high for the year.

The Register-Herald reports the Parksway Authority collected more than $8 million in June. That’s the most revenue for that month in a four-year period.

For the year, toll revenues are up 1.4 percent so far. Toll revenues decreased to a low of $6.5 million in February due to winter weather.

The authority also reported Thursday that sales at Tamarack decreased 10 percent in June. Last year’s total sales were $6.4 million, and sales for each month this year have lagged behind last year’s numbers.
