    Scranton already has a beltway. But one side is tolled. And tolls have been going up so the turnpike can send payments to PennDOT. The free side is crowded. They can’t add tolls to it because it’s an interstate. If they were allowed to charge variable tolling on both roads they could balance the traffic.
