The federal government is probing toll increases in several Northeast states, Bloomberg reported.
The Government Accountability Office sent letters this month to operators of bridges and tunnels in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania and Delaware, Bloomberg said.
Last summer, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey set steep toll hikes for Hudson River crossings, including the George Washington Bridge between New York City and New Jersey.
The toll inquiry was triggered by Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), who has criticized recent hikes on bridges and tunnels operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
