Q: Now that the New York State Thruway is going cashless by the end of 2020 throughout Central New York, when will we see the the construction crews starting to demolish the old toll booths?
A: Such an interesting question. This will change the look of the New York State Thruway. A spokesperson from the Thruway Authority tells me they are on schedule to have the cashless toll system up by the end of 2020. Once that is in place they will being removing the old toll booth structures in 2020 and they plan for them all to be removed by the end of 2021. Thank you for the questions. Wishing you miles of smiles!
