The Inevitability Of Tolling In America

According to a recent survey by HNTB, almost 80% of Americans would support the addition of a toll on a non-tolled surface transportation facility if it resulted in a safer, congestion-free and more reliable trip. Of those, 78% support tolling existing interstates if the funds collected would go solely toward improving that particular interstate.
“Tolling is becoming the solution of choice for generating additional user-based transportation revenue,” said Jim Ely, HNTB chair toll services and senior vice president. “Inflation, improved fuel economy, changing driving habits and rising construction costs have eaten away at the purchasing power of federal and state gas taxes,” says.
