The MassDOT Board of Directors this week approved plans to completely demolish Interstate 90 toll plazas by the end of 2017 as a milestone in the state’s progress toward All Electronic Tolling (AET) along Interstate 90 (the Massachusetts Turnpike), the Tobin Bridge, and Boston tunnels. Motorists are encouraged to sign up for EZPass as the transition approaches.
