If the first leg of the proposed Trans-Texas Corridor is
actually built paralleling Interstate 35, it could be a very expensive toll
road for big trucks.
The Waco Tribunereported that the Texas
Department of Transportation's master plan calls for charging trucks 58.5 cents
If that were the case, it would cost $216.45 to run the full
370 miles of the corridor - nearly four times what four-wheelers would pay.
A manager with Old Dominion Freight Lines told the Tribune
the company plans to send its trucks on the existing I-35 and avoid the tolls
Four-wheelers on the Trans-Texas Corridor would pay 15.2
cents per mile.
