How much is it in your area? Just curious.
Bay Area Bridges are $4.00.
None in Michigan, but I'm about to do a cross country trip, so I'll letcha know.
Bring back the Sig Test!
.75 USD on the tollway between Loop 1 in Austin and I-35. Will be $20 per day (yep, $10.00 each way) when Austin puts in toll lanes down one of the main highways (loop 1).
Austin has a strong toll lobby which wants to replace all streets with tollways. :/
I don't think there is a toll road in the whole country here.

Did the GG bridge start charging toll for bikes?
This space open
In the next 5 years, there will be tolls on the 2 bridges that cross the Columbia between Oregon and Washington.

The one who we figured had to pay the most would spend about 20 bucks or so a day. That's not including parking, either!
My comment of course would be that it would sure encourage more public transportation use or perhaps....CYCLING!!!
I pay 4$ for my tolls.
Dont think there are any toll roads in Canada...
It will take more than 5 years. I think they're expecting about 2015 or so.
The expected toll is $3-5 during rush hour. Less during other times. No roads with tolls in either Washington or Oregon as far as I know.
The new bridge is supposed to have a big bike/pedestrian lane with no toll.
I-78 crossing the Delaware - $0.75 Bridges in/near Philly $2.00.
I hate toll roads. Will only take them if I save more in gas than it costs. Unfortunately, the PA Turnpike is about the only viable East-West non-stop route in the southern half of the state heading west from here.
The search for inner peace continues...
Lake Pontchartrain causeway is $3 southbound (into New Orleans) It's a 20 mile bridge. 2$ if you have an electronic pass.
Crescent City Connection (Over Mississippi River) in New Orleans is $1 inbound (I think)
Only ones I can think of around here.
My daily commute involves a toll road. $2.00 each way, so I spend about $20 week on tolls. A bit more if I am dropping my son off at day care, as I have to pay $1.00 to get on or off at that exit.
The toll road shaves time and distance off my commute, avoids stop and go driving, etc., so I consider it a necessary evil.
There's a few in this area.
In New Hamshire on I-95 there is the $1.50 Hampton toll. On Rt-16 (Spaulding Turnpike) there are tolls in Dover ($0.50?) and Rochester (I don't have a clue).
In Maine there is the Maine Turnpike which starts in York and goes to Augusta on I-95. There are 2 barrier tolls ($1.75 in York, $??? in Lewiston), and $0.65 tolls to get on each exit.
99% of my driving avoids all of these.
Why isn't 11 pronounced onety one?
Before I moved, I was paying I think about a $1.10 each way to work if I took the toll roads. Same if I took them to school. I would typically only take the toll roads to work / school and surface streets the other way.

The base toll, as of March 18, 2008, for vehicles under 5,000 kg is 19.00 to 19.25 cents/km during peak hours (6am-10am and 3pm-7pm weekdays) depending on where the vehicle travels and 18.00 cents/km during other hours for all stretches of the highway.
The tollway is around 100 kilometers long.
The Northeast extension of the PA Turnpike is a toll road, but I use a transponder, so never pay attention to what it costs. I only use it occasionally to get to Allentown or Philadelphia areas. I just checked and it is $4.75 for about 85 miles.
The state is trying to pass a bill to lease the turnpike to a private party... why this would save the state money while making money for the company leasing it is beyond me... other than raising tolls... and that is probably the plan. The state could just do that directly, but then they couldn't as easily pass the buck.
PA leases Turnpike.
Company claims that it is losing too much money and has to raise tolls.
PA waves their arms and grumbles about how the company should manage their resources better... This would have nevewr happened under state control.
The masses blindly follow the lead and get angry at the company instead of the state government that couldn't make it work and decided to lease the turnpike to pass the buck.
But let me stop before I get this thread sent to P&R.
