Huntley’s new toll

Published: Wednesday, April 2, 2014 5:30 a.m. CST

To the Editor:

Does anyone else have an issue paying a new toll to go to Chicago from Huntley at the new Route 47 intersection with Interstate 90 when it’s only five miles before the next toll east of Randall Road, but going west to Rockford it’s 20 or 30 miles before the first toll?

It’s wrong to make people double pay. Huntley should pay what’s needed because the village wanted the new ramps built. Of course, you can drive to Randall Road to get on the interstate and avoid more theft from the tollway.
