Toll Facilities in the United States: Bridges – Roads – Tunnels – Ferries. December 2007

The first section of this report presents a discussion of the history and current policy regarding toll roads in the United States. The second section contains selected information on toll facilities in the United States. The information is based on a survey of facilities in operation, financed, or under construction as of January 1, 2007. Tables T-1 and T-2 include, where known: the direction of toll collection; the type of electronic toll collection system, if available; whether the facility is part of the National Highway System (NHS); and various financial and fee information. Table T-1 contains information such as the name, financing or operating authority, location and termini, feature crossed, length, and road system for toll roads, bridges, tunnels, and ferries that connect highways. Table T-1 consists of 5 parts. Parts 1 and 3 include the Interstate System route numbers for toll facilities located on the Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways. Parts 2 and 4 include a functional system identification code for non-Interstate System toll bridges, roads, and tunnels. Part 5 includes vehicular toll ferries. Table T-2 contains a list of those projects under serious consideration as toll facilities, awaiting completion of financing arrangements, or proposed as new toll facilities that are being studied for financial and operational feasibility. Also included are links to tables containing data on receipts and disbursements of toll facilities. These tables are published in the annual "Highway Statistics." A section containing available names, addresses, and phone numbers of toll authorities is also provided; please note that not all toll authorities are included. This report is not intended to be a complete reference on toll facilities nor is it intended to duplicate data published by other organizations. Nearly all of the publicly owned toll authorities publish reports that contain information such as width and clearance on bridges, types of structure, road limits, year built or put in service, traffic volumes, cost, toll rates, etc. Information on ferries such as seasonal or hourly operating schedules has been included when available. Complete information on schedules and on the number and capacity of boats in operation may be obtained directly from the operating authority.
