Beware the toll booth in Illinois. Tolls are already way too high, especially if you don't have one of those transponders (in other words, double what those with them pay).
Now, because of needed improvements, the price for everyone, including those with transponders is going up starting January 1st. And, it is not going up just a little bit. Everyone will be paying almost twice as much.
That means those with transponders will go from 40 cents to 75 cents!! Those without go from 80 cents to $1.50!!!
Just one more reason to avoid Chicago and Illinois.
And, will they drop these increased tolls after the projects are completed. Fat chance of that. History shows that that just doesn't happen.
At least there are no tolls on Route 66 or the Lincoln Highway.
Just Another Illinois/Chicago Rip-Off!! --RoadDog
