PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Fewer vehicles on the road during the pandemic may translate to higher tolls for those using the Maine Turnpike.

The Maine Turnpike Authority is proposing rate increases to help offset $60 million that it says it lost during the pandemic.

The proposed increase and other adjustments could bring in about $17 million with about 70% of the cost being borne by out-of-state motorists.
