The Thruway Authority has again postponed a meeting at which it was expected to vote on a proposed 45 percent toll increase for trucks.

The Thruway’s board was scheduled to meet late this morning at the agency’s headquarters in Albany. The Thruway’s website says the meeting has been postponed and will be rescheduled.

The board was originally scheduled to meet last Friday, but that meeting was postponed until today.

The Thruway Authority has yet to produce an agenda for the meeting.

In May, the authority proposed what it called a “modest” 45 percent toll increase for commercial trucks. Opponents of the increase say it will hurt New York state’s shaky economy. Thruway officials say the toll increase is needed to keep the agency fiscally sound.
