INDOT eyes strategic plan for interstate tolling

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Department of Transportation is looking for a company to develop a strategic plan for charging tolls on several interstate highways.

The tolling plan is required under a transportation bill approved this year by the Republican-dominated Legislature and signed by Gov. Eric Holcomb. The plan is needed for the state to seek federal approval of charging tolls on interstate routes.

The study will include most of I-65 and I-70 across much of the state and I-94 in northwestern Indiana. INDOT also wants to take a closer look at possible tolls for I-465 that circles Indianapolis.

INDOT spokesman Scott Manning says no decisions have been made about tolling any highways yet.

The highway department expects to select a contractor for the study by late January.

  1. Ah yes…Another Holcomb money grab from Hoosiers. At least this time it will include anyone that wants to drive to or through Indiana. Great idea to attract people to Indiana!

    What a boob Holcomb is!

  2. If I recall there are federal laws that ban adding tolls to existing highways. The state would have to build a new interstate to charge tolls.
