Tolls increasing in 2018

Thursday, December 21, 2017 by Katy McElroy

The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority is raising tolls on the U.S. Highway 183A and 290 toll roads and State Highway 71 toll lane by 2.23 percent effective Jan. 1, 2018. The CTRMA press release says that the rate increase is consistent with the Consumer Price Index and “will equate to rates approximately $0.01 – $0.03 greater than the current rates at each toll plaza.” For customers with an electronic tag, the rates for a full-length trip on 183A will increase by six cents, by five cents on 290 and by two cents in the 71 toll lane.  View a PDF of the detailed rate schedule here. The increases are part of a regular CTRMA policy that adjusts rates by small amounts according to inflation every year in order to avoid having to make large increases every five years. Signs on these tollways will be changed to reflect this increase within the next few weeks, but the old rates apply all the way through the end of 2017. MoPac Express Lane rates are not going up.
