The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority says it’s tabling the possibility of a toll rate increase due to recent litigation brought against the OTA.
The authority's board decided Tuesday not to vote on a proposal that would increase tolls by a total of 17 percent over three years to fund new construction around the state.
The board's message says it plans to hold the discussion about the increase until the litigation has been resolved.
OTA recently reported that toll revenues have increased 43 percent since 2003, to a record $245 million last year. The agency says it made a profit of about $45 million in 2015.
