Pennsylvania Turnpike Authority officials yesterday announced a proposed electronic tolling plan on Interstate 80 that would implement nine stations along the roadway, bringing in roughly $450 million of toll revenue each year.

Officials said the authority's goal is to generate additional revenue on the 311-mile stretch while reigning in traffic diversion onto local, non-tolled roads. The Turnpike's toll conversion project manager, Barry Schoch of McCormick Taylor Inc., said the authority will offer the E-ZPass system where motorists pre-pay their toll use at a discounted rate.
