August 25, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- The Illinois Toll Authority voted Thursday to almost double what it charges people to use its roadways.
Anyone with an I-PASS will see their basic toll jump from 40 to 75 cents starting next year. Drivers using cash to pay tolls will be paying twice what I-PASS users pay.
Before the 7-1 vote, the board heard more testimony favoring the increase as a way to jumpstart the region's economy.
This will surly solve their funding issues, and create more jobs.
