WESTFIELD – The final toll booth on New York State’s Thruway has been brought down.

Last year, New York launched cashless tolling statewide, with more than 52 toll plazas statewide converted to electronic transitions.







On Monday, the last standing toll plaza at Exit 60 in Westfield was removed.

State officials say cashless tolling not only helps improve safety and traffic flow of highways, but also, play a role in strengthening New York’s economy.







Exit realignment and road reconstruction continues at interchanges across the Thruway system, and is on schedule to be completed by the end of October, weather permitting.

The transition to cashless tolling on the Thruway system first began in 2016 on the then Tappan Zee Bridge, now Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, followed by the remaining fixed-price barriers in 2018.













In 2019, construction started on the Thruway’s 400-mile ticketed system with the installation of gantries at 52 tolling locations, including gantries over the main highway and on entrance/exit ramps.

To further enhance the cashless tolling experience, motorists are encouraged to download the Tolls NY mobile app which allows drivers to manage and update their E-ZPass account, pay toll bills quickly and easily, and receive important account alerts.
