Seattle has been gradually adding tolls. Tomorrow the old Highway 99 through Downtown closes. In three weeks a new two-mile tolled bypass tunnel will open to replace it...our own mini-big-dig. We've also tolled the replacement 520 bridge across Lake Washington.

Don't forget 405, with toll lanes. Though that is optional.

Not sure what the "real 405" is. But yes, 405 south of Bellevue to Renton has no toll lanes. If that is what you are referring to.

I would say Cleveland doesn't have true toll roads. Yes, the Ohio turnpike (I-80) goes through southern Cuyahoga and Lorain counties, but it's not much of a point to point local highway. Unless you happen to live within 5 minutes of a tollbooth and are traveling to within 5 minutes of another tollbooth, there will be quicker alternatives. I can't imagine that more than maybe 1-2 percent of the turnpike traffic that goes through the metro is local (especially since it goes mainly through areas with some of the lowest population densities).

He was referring to the notorious 405 in SoCal.

I've always thought it was funny that there was a 405 in Seattle as well, along with the (one and only) 5. Listening to traffic reports up there, you might think you were still down here.

The "real 405" is the San Diego Freeway in Greater Los Angeles

The three-letter "spurs" can and do repeat throughout the US. Typically, it takes the last digit from the "parent" freeway, in this case "5". In Portland the spur is 205, and yet another 405 just west of downtown. Tacoma also has a short spur called 705. LA has a number of spurs, 405, 605, 105. San Diego has an 805.
