I haven't driven that section in 4 years, but I thought the first toll plaza on I-70 in Kansas was around 11 miles west of the I-435 Beltway.

Correct. Leavenworth County, KS is still metropolitan KC, however.

For the sake of sports teams, I don't think Portland or Green Bay have tolls.

But these are fairly new toll roads. Only within the last 15 years. Even then they are only good for those who live in South OC. All other areas of Southern California has freeways, as it should be.

first off freeways are not free, secondly in many ways tolls are a fairer way to have people using them pay more of the bill


I guess I am just used to toll roads living in the northeast, seems like half the highways here are tolled

Okay we know freeways exactly aren't free "Mr. Technically" lol but you don't pay again while using it.

And again, the SoCal toll roads all have easily accessible free options nearby. There is no such thing, for instance, as a bridge that can't be crossed without paying a toll, or a single major thoroughfare between two cities that is tolled.

The Twin Cities area has HOV lanes that are tolled for single-occupancy drivers that want to use them.

What about New Orleans? I've not encountered anythere either.
That's correct. Phoenix Metro doesn't have tolls
