Tollway denies report I-PASS users may pay more

April 19, 2010 (CHICAGO)

Crain's Chicago business reports leaders of the cash-strapped agency are "quietly" considering the hike even though they previously declared it unacceptable.

The tollway system faces up to $4 billion in critical repairs on I-90 and $7 billion in debt on the books. In response, the Illinois Tollway spokesperson says there is no proposal or discussion to increase any kind of tolls at this time.

I-PASS users are currently charged 40 cents a toll.
