The Intercounty Connector, a highway connecting Montgomery and Prince Georges Counties in Maryland, is scheduled to open its first portion in 2010. When it does, it will be the first highway in Maryland to use electronic tolling exclusively.

Of the entire 18.8 mile stretch, authorities anticipate about 17.5 miles being tolled. Using overhead tolling technology, E-ZPass users would breeze through the tolling infrastructure. Non E-ZPass users would be billed by mail and incur a $3 surcharge.

At 35 cents per mile, drivers with E-ZPasses would pay $2.31 for the average trip during rush hour and $6.13 for traveling the entire length of the road.
