Drivers will pay $1.90 to travel 10-miles of Elgin-O’Hare tollway
A trip on the Elgin-O’Hare Expressway will cost up to $1.90 when the extension project is complete.
The road will be converted to a tollway in 2017.
It will be Illinois’ most expensive tollway, costing 20-cents per mile.
The system-wide average toll is six cents a mile.
The oft-criticized “road to nowhere” will also get a new official name. It’ll be redesignated as Illinois Route 390.
The new tollway will be all-electronic, meaning drivers will have to pay via I-Pass or on-line.
Toll rates for commercial vehicles or for customers without I-Pass, who would have to pay via the Tollway’s website, have not been determined yet.
