Congress is considering a plan that would allow states to collect tolls on interstate highways.

EDISON - More toll roads could be coming to the Garden State under a new plan proposed by the Obama administration.

The $302 billion transportation plan proposed last month would reverse a long-standing federal prohibition on most interstate tolling.

The New Jersey Turnpike is among some of the older segments of the interstate highway system that has tolls. Most of the system is toll-free.

The state's transportation trust fund is reportedly running out of money and lawmakers are looking for ways to replenish it to fix roads and bridges.

State lawmakers say the idea of adding tolls should be explored. Lawmakers have also floated the idea of raising the gas tax to support road projects.
