No More Border Highway Tolls

Illinois Proposes Overhauling Toll Roads

If you use the Border Highway toll lanes, or don’t use it because it is a toll road, things are getting better for you!

The tolls will be suspended at midnight tonight. For good! State Rep. Joe Pickett, D-El Paso, explained this action to the El Paso Times:

“This small action is a big deal for my community. This toll is not going to generate enough money for other projects.” “Only 6 percent of my community uses it and they use it for only two hours a day. We have a beautiful highway that isn’t being used. We hope by removing the toll it will help ease congestion on our roads.” – El Paso Times

According to Pickett, not enough people are using the toll lanes so they aren’t generating any money for other projects. He added that the toll lanes also create traffic problems along that stretch of Loop 375.
