WINDSOR, Ont. — The Detroit & Canada Tunnel Corp. recently announced increased tolls will be effective for vehicles travelling from the United States to Canada.
The Canada to United States tolls, however, will remain the same.
The minimum vehicle fare for commercial trucks and tractor trailers will rise from $2.25 to $2.75, while the additional charge per 100 pounds gross weight will rise to 28 cents from 25 cents. Carriers with monthly charges of over $12,000 will get a 25 per cent discount, as before. Carriers with monthly charges over $20,000 will now get a 30 per cent discount.
The tunnel company is also starting work on a $9 million electrical and mechanical upgrade to the U.S. portions of the tunnel. The higher tolls will help pay for the upgrade.
