Toll Facilities in the United States

Data Explanation

This report contains selected information on toll facilities in the United States that has been provided to FHWA by the States and/or various toll authorities regarding toll facilities in operation, financed, or under construction as of January 1, 2013. The report is based on voluntary responses received biennially. Differences and inconsistencies from previous editions or in the current tables may be due to omissions, corrections of known errors, and/or the introduction of new ones from those responding to the survey. Known reported ambiguities of rural/urban designations are assumed as urban. Corrections will be made pending confirmation by the State or toll authority in question.

Table T-1 includes, 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).
  • Various financial and fee information.

It 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.

  • 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.

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, type 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.
