  •  Rural and smaller roads (0+ / 0-)

    are not candidates for tolls.  Toll roads are built by private entities and only when the numbers tell them that they will be getting a profit from the tolls.  There is no profit in rural roads.

      ...the Illinois Toll Highway Authority is a public agency, but, like the Post Office, is funded entirely by tolls. They ahve to maintain everything to FHWA standards, but they don't get any money from the state, or provide any money to the state.

      •  I don't believe in toll roads (0+ / 0-)

        personally, for a variety of reasons.  I am surprised that they are allowed to raise the tolls beyond maintenance etc. of the road they are driving.
