IRVINE, CA – August 15, 2017 – Crews will be removing 13 toll booths at 11 ramp locations throughout The Toll Roads system August through October – five on the 73 Toll Road, one on the 133 Toll Road, four on the 241 Toll Road and one on the 261 Toll Road.
With the conversion to all-electronic tolling in 2014, the toll booths are no longer needed and removing them allows the lanes to be widened to create smoother driving flows when entering and exiting The Toll Roads. Drivers without a FasTrak® or ExpressAccount® who drive the 73, 133, 241 or 261 Toll Roads can pay tolls online at TheTollRoads.com five days before or five days after their drive.
Weekend closures will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday and end at 6 a.m. on Monday. Construction activities will include removal of toll booths, reconstructing pavement, restriping lanes and reconfiguring toll equipment.
