Per the Illinois Toll Authority:
The Illinois Tollway reminds commercial truck drivers that rates for trucks and trailers will increase beginning on January 1, 2015 through January 1, 2017. Beginning in January 1, 2018, increases for trucks and trailers will be linked to the Consumer Price Index.
A multi-year increase in truck and trailer toll rates is helping to maintain the Tollway system and finance the Tollway’s 15-year, $12 billion capital program, Move Illinois: The Illinois Tollway Driving the Future.
Approved by the Illinois Tollway’s Board of Directors in 2008, the new toll rate implementation for trucks and trailers began in January 1, 2015, and is being phased in to give commercial truckers time to prepare for the new toll rate schedule.
The Move Illinois Program, which was approved by the Tollway Board in 2011, is ensuring that the agency’s 286-mile system of toll roads are well-maintained and is providing new and improved roadways.
