YORK — The Maine Turnpike Authority is getting more public input and suggestions on its toll hike proposals.

The agency that oversees the 109-mile toll highway is holding a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. today at the York American Legion Hall. The authority has already held three public hearings and has a fifth one scheduled this Wednesday in Wells.

Ten toll hike options are now under consideration to raise additional revenue to cover the turnpike’s operating budget, maintenance and long-term debt service.

The authority’s preferred option is to add $1 to the toll plaza in York, 75 cents in New Gloucester and West Gardiner, and 50 cents each at the Wells northbound and Gray southbound toll plazas. E-ZPass rates would also go up.
