Those toll booths still sit about 2 miles inside the state of Illinois. Not sure how that's slightly decieving? The state of Wisconsin cannot control what Illinois does on the other side of the border.

Point being is that I-39 is in essence a road to nowhere. Going between Rothschild, WI and Normal, IL. So most people who use it in WI outside the Madison area are using it to get to Illinois without having to use two laners

Wisconsin is still a no toll state though. Itís unquestionable.

Well, a lot of those bridges with tolls are part of the highway. just not a very long part of it. but I don't know how that distinction matters anyway -- it's just the existence of tolls that is the topic of discussion, not the road surface or what's under it.

I think they are the ones below, but I'm probably missing some:

Minneapolis
Milwaukee
Indianapolis
Cincinnati
Columbus Oh
St. Louis
Kansas City
Nashville
Charlotte
Charlotte just got its first toll road opened recently on the eastern side of the metro. A US 74 bypass of the city of Monroe and other suburbs in Union County.

They are on their way to Jacksonville. Primarily on the outer outer loops (so not really affecting most people who live in the city) and also in the form of express/lexus lanes.
