Could Toll Roads be the future for Interstate 70? A new report was recently submitted by request to Governor Nixon about the potential for that idea. The report shows that the state does not have the money to fix the interstate as it stands and would need at least $2 billion to repair it. A lot of the money issues stems from the voted down Amendment 3 which would have given MODOT a 3 quarter cent sales tax to help fund projects like I-70. The transportation department’s report estimates that drives could win up paying anywhere between $20 to $30 dollars for a trip between St. Louis and Kansas City with truckers paying between $40 and $90 dollars. The biggest worry for agencies in the lake area is how a toll road on 70 could affect traffic coming to the Lake area and the increase it could bring to back roads like Highways 5, 7 and 42 to avoid paying tolls.
