MD Transportation Authority has set the toll rate for the first segment of the toll road, covering from Gaithersburg to Olney (Georgia Avenue).
And it won’t be cheap. In fact critics have declared this as the most expensive toll rate in the entire country.
Drivers who use this five and a half mile segment will have to pay $1.45 during peak hours, $1.15 off peak and $0.60 during overnight hours, according to WTOP News.
The peak travel period is between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays. The first segment of the ICC is scheduled to open late this year or early next year.
Truckers will pay much more, Maryland transportation officials said Friday. The tolls for six-axle trucks will be $10.60 during rush hour, $8.50 in off-peak hours and $4.25 overnight.
The segment from Laurel and Olney will take at least one more year to open.
