MTA OK's 7% raise tolls on bridges and tunnels

  
Hudson Valley drivers heading to the city will soon pay more to cross bridges and tunnels.           
The MTA board approved a toll increase hike yesterday. Starting in April, tolls will increase by 7% on major crossings, including the Queens Midtown Tunnel and Throgs Neck Bridge.
That means tolls will climb 43 cents, to $6.55 for E-ZPass users.
There's also a new surcharge for drivers who fail to properly mount or display their E-ZPass tags.
