Which cities don't pay tolls on their highways. St. Louis and California don't seem to have any. Dallas/Ft. Worth had a couple. Many eastern cities have them. Chicago has too many in my opinon and the ipass system must be confusing for tourists. Do you pay a higher tax instead?

They just restructured our tolls here on the Mass Pike. I haven't been paying too much attention but they eliminated them west of a certain point and raised them sharply (I believe it may have even doubled, but I could be wrong) closer to Boston. Needless to say, many people are outraged.

Tolls. what are these tolls you speak of?

The only portions of public roadways in Michigan that have tolls, are a couple of the bridges that link us to Canada, and the Mackinac Bridge between the Upper Peninsula and the Lower Peninsula. Other than that there are no toll roads. There should be a couple downstate where the traffic is the heaviest IMHO.

California has the 241, 261, 133, and 73 tollroads. All four of these are located in Orange County. The 91 Express Lanes are toll lanes running down the middle of the regular freeway.

In San Diego County there is the 125 tollroad. The southern portion of Route 125 from Route 905 to Route 54 near Chula Vista is a toll road called the South Bay Expressway.

We don't have many, but there are a small few. You pay tolls on the Bay Area Bridges also.

There are no toll roads in Tennessee.

As far as I know, Georgia has only one toll road, Georgia Highway 400 which connects Buckhead to Sandy Springs. It's only a few miles long and costs 50 cents. It's a pretty fun drive. MARTA trains run in the median.

Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas have them. Texas only around big cities, but Kansas and Oklahoma all the way across. Those are the only toll roads between the Mississippi River and the olnes mentioned above in Californiia, except for a few toll bridges. It's toll from Rockford Illinois through Chicago, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvanis, all around DC to NYC, all the way to Bangor Maine. Kentucky still has a few, West Virginia has one, and Florida has a lot.

Otherwise, roads are all free, but bridges might be toll.

The toll road in Maine only goes as far north as Augusta, not all the way to Bangor.

Most of I-80 thru Ohio is a toll road, not too sure about any others. I think it may be the only one.
