MDX to hold public meetings about 50% toll rate increases on 836 and 112

Happy New Year!

Well MDX has big plans for the future.  And they include a 50% toll rate increase on 836 and 112.  Also, they will be implementing CPI (Consumer Price Indexing) for future rate increases on all MDX toll roads (874,878, 836, 112, 924).

Plus, they will be installing multiple toll gantries and collection systems on the full length of 836 and 112.  Exactly how they did on the 874 and 878 back in 2010.  So no more free rides for anyone that uses an MDX road.

Do you or anyone you know use the 836 or 112 expressways?  Please tell them about the upcoming public meetings.  See list below.

We need to organize and create a united voice against this “tollation”.  The MDX board of directors has the power to raise tolls without any input/representation from the public that uses their roads.  Is this fair? How do you feel about  MDX’s plan to raise toll rates on 836 and 112 by 50%?  Make your voice heard on our Facebook page. (http://www.facebook.com/rollbacktolls)

Please spread the word.  We cannot let them get away with this without hearing from the toll payers, you and me!
