SOUTH BEND – The cost of driving on the Indiana Toll Road just went up.
Sunday morning, private operator ITR Concession, Inc. increased the tolls for all drivers without an I-Zoom transponder by an average of 3%.
Motorists in cars and other two-axle vehicles using I-Zoom will continue to pay the same toll they have since ITR leased the roadway from the state in 2006. That discount ends in 2016.
The company’s lease agreement with the state allows ITR to raise tolls each July 1.
The full toll for cars and other two-axle vehicles running the length of the road went up Sunday to $9.40 from the previous $9.
