Toll Costs On The Rise

Posted by wlpo on July 29, 2011

CHICAGO (AP) – Tolls could be going up next year.

Officials announced Thursday a plan to increase tolls to pay for a $12 billion project to repair and expand Chicago-area
expressways. Tolls would increase from 80 cents to $1.50 for cash-paying vehicles. For I-Pass users, tolls would rise from 40 cents to 75 cents. The Tollways wants the rates to take effect Jan. 1.

Public hearings will be held next month and the tollway board could vote on the plan Aug. 25.
