The Indian Nation toll road---what would be the charge for a travel trailer/tow vehicle from Henryetta to Hugo? I've never heard of this route before.

Why not use the online calculator?

Maybe he didn't know about it. Why not be a little nicer?


Because I wanted to give him the most complete and accurate information possible, using a minimum of words. By the way, I knew nothing before doing a quick 30 second search using words copied and pasted from the original post. Good Grief!


Well then, let me give you an example with even fewer words and more manners:

Here's an online calculator.

If we were sitting around a fire, I would have used a different word.

Snarky means rude, so I suppose snark means rudeness.

There are a few toll roads in Oklahoma, and Kansas.

Much of I-35 across Kansas is a toll road. Kansas Turnpike

Much of I-44 from the Texas border to the Missouri border is a toll road. And the Indian Nation Turnpike as you mentioned. Oklahoma Toll Roads

The toll process is moving away from toll booths where you pay cash.

Automated sensors which activate direct billing if the vehicle has a toll device (We have three - NTTA Toll Tag for Texas (OK & KS), Sunpass for Florida and EZ-Tag for IL-Mass/ Maine-NC

Your account already has basic information on your vehicles and link to a payment via credit card or direct bank transaction.

When you pass through a toll booth, the system automatically charges the toll and that's it as far as you are concerned.

The other technology uses optical recognition of your license plate and a bill is sent to the address where the vehicle is registered. Most toll authorities charge a higher fee for vehicles which to not have automated sensors and accounts.

One WARNING - toll bridges are very often not linked to other systems, and may require cash tolls. Bridges are exempt from the 2011 national law over interoperability (for which the full implementation has been pushed back again).

Normal fees are 1x toll amount for a two axle vehicle, 2x for three axles, 4x for four axles - such as a truck towing a TT or a 5er, or a motorhome with a toad.

We do not use toll roads while towing, but do use them in some places where it makes sense - without the trailer.

Personally, I do not need to use toll roads except near north east Oklahoma (I-44)

In that area of the state of Oklahoma south of I-40, I use US-75/ US-69. Or if east of the Turnpike, I use US-271 or US-259 or OK-2 - all are slower than the Turnpike, but heck, I'm an old retired fart and not in a hurry.

I feel sorry for people who live in states with numerous toll roads. Here in AZ we've voted down every attempt at a toll road. They still get built thru other means but no toll.

Click on this if you want to read about the corruption in the PA Turnpike system. As always, follow the money.

PawPaw mentioned 259 in eastern Ok and we travel that route from Tx to our Arkansas land. Very pretty drive thru the Ouachita's but it does have a few steep grades.

This 2017 article describes the need and state of toll road interoperablity. So congress did mandate the integration we want, but they didn't provide any standards, penalties or money, so the agencies are just nibbling away at the task, slowly forming larger clusters.

As of 2017 15 of the states don't have toll roads.

Thanks---I found the site to calculate the fees. From what I've seen, this might be an alternative for travel south.
We don't have toll roads here in the frozen North Idaho area, so I'm not familiar with how they work. Our roads are "paved - unpaved."
Also, from what I've gathered, the toll roads around the U.S. don't have a real agreement for a pass that can be used freely across the states. Maybe Congress could address issues like this, but I'm sure they have more "important" things to do.
Thanks again........


You're welcome. If you hate tolls as much as I do, don't come to my home state of PA. With the fuel taxes near the top of the nation, they are proposing adding tolls on many more bridges. The whole northeast has a network of toll roads that are nothing more than added expense for everything and they wonder why business is moving south. You mention congress, yes we have interstate highways funded in large part by the federal but many of these bridges are interstates that the state wants to tax (toll).


Haha. We're from Berks County and heading to Texas next week. First stop will be Winchester, Virginia to fill up with diesel which is about 40 cents a gallon cheaper. With the Flying J card it's 8cents cheaper so that's almost 50 cents. Our state sucks with all the taxes we pay and the Pa turnpike is the most expensive toll road in the world.
