Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

Toll rates; electronic toll collection.
(a) The county board shall fix the rates of toll, and may from time to
time, alter and change the same, including by establishing a toll rate schedule, setting a maximum toll rate that may be adjusted from time to time, or by establishing another toll rate structure, and in case of the neglect of the owner of
the bridge to keep the same in proper repair and safe for the crossing of
persons and property, may prohibit the taking of toll.
(b) Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, the county board may enter into an agreement establishing a toll rate schedule for a period not to exceed 99 years. This amendatory Act of the 101st General Assembly is declarative of existing law and shall be given retroactive effect.
(c) Except as regarding toll bridges or as otherwise provided by law, nothing in Public Act 101-398 shall be construed to authorize a county, municipality, local government, or private operator to impose a toll upon any public road, street, or highway; nor shall any provision of Public Act 101-398 be construed to authorize, pursuant to an intergovernmental agreement or otherwise, the imposition of any toll upon any public road, street, or highway.
(d) The General Assembly finds that electronic toll collection systems in Illinois should be standardized to promote safety, efficiency, and traveler convenience. If electronic toll collection is used on such bridge, the county shall cause the configuration of the electronic toll collection system to be compatible with the electronic toll collection system used by the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority. The municipality or private operator may enter into an agreement with the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority to provide for such compatibility or to have the Authority provide electronic toll collection or toll violation enforcement services. Any toll bridges in Winnebago County that are in operation and collecting tolls on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 97th General Assembly are exempt from the provisions of the Act.
