Montgomery County Council Committee Wants Lower ICC Tolls

Play associated audio

By Matt Bush

A Montgomery County council committee is recommending cheaper tolls along the Intercounty Connector.

The council's transportation and environment committee recommended tolls that would at least be 10 cents per mile cheaper during rush hour periods. If the state transportation authority's proposed tolls are adopted, a trip on the road's full-length during rush hour periods would cost more than $6. All tolls will also be collected electronically using the EZ-Pass system.

The state does not have to follow the council's recommendation.
