For the first time in two years, drivers will have to pony up more cash to travel on the Ohio Turnpike starting Jan. 1.
A one-way trip across the length of the turnpike will rise from $15 to $16.50. But cars using an electronic E-ZPass will pay slightly less--Up to $11.25 from $10.25.

The Ohio Turnpike Commission told the Associated Press they approved the toll increase in 2009 right before the launch of E-ZPass.
Depending on the interchange, some drivers might not see any increases in their tolls. Others, like those taking the westbound turnpike from State Route 7 to Hallock-Young Road in Lordstown, will see a 25 cent difference.
