Open Road Tolling Development | Illinois Tollway

The Illinois Tollway turned to Knight for assistance in the creation of a new method of toll-collection that would improve service, reduce congestion and increase operational efficiency. With more than 20 years of experience in designing toll plaza facilities for the Tollway Knight was able to provide advice and technical support for a new toll collection concept that would utilize high speed, no-stop toll collection facilities and allow an entire system with free flow of traffic - called “Open Road Tolling.” Knight developed a prototype for the new mainline and ramp plazas that would work in multiple locations along the system while fitting in limited Tollway right-of-way.
