Illinois Truckers Want Tollway Discounts

By  | 

Illinois Trucking Association officials say they are concerned about a proposed large toll increase for truckers.

The group's executive director submitted the group's suggestions for tollway discounts Thursday in a meeting with tollway officials.

Truckers are upset over the tollway's $5.3 million capital reconstruction plan that Gov. Rod Blagojevich announced last month. The plan calls for an increase in tolls, but truckers say they are struggling already with higher fuel costs and taxes.
