SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Transportation leaders officially approved a plan Wednesday to charge you more for crossing Bay Area bridges.
Tolls will go up $1 on every bridge except the Golden Gate Bridge starting January 1.

So the toll for a regular vehicle during peak hours will go from $6 to $7.
It's the result of Measure 3, which voters approved in June.
But two lawsuits are challenging the results.

Opponents say it required a two-thirds vote to pass which it didn't get.
The money from the toll hike will be put into escrow until the lawsuit is resolved.
