This week you can have a chance to weigh-in on the proposed tolls for the Intercounty Connector.

The public hearings on tolls for the 18-mile highway are sponsored by The Maryland Transportation Authority's board.

The board has proposed rush-hour tolls of 25 to 35 cents a mile. Off-peak rates would range from 20 to 30 cents a mile. Analysts say that could add up to approximately $6.50 to travel the entire highway making the tolls some of the highest in the country. State officials say the numbers are comparable to newer toll roads.

The meetings will be held Wednesday at High Point High School in Beltsville and Thursday at Shady Grove Middle in Gaithersburg.
