There is a new toll booth system being built on Interstate 70 about 8 miles east of the Lawrence service center. Is it going to replace the Bonner Springs exit? If so, will the toll be less than what it is now or what exactly will the toll be from Lawrence to Kansas City on the turnpike?
Yes, a new toll booth is being built that will replace both the Bonner Springs and the eastern terminal booths, said Lisa Callaghan, public relations director for Kansas Turnpike Assn. The change will take effect early next month, she said.
It will still cost $1.25 from west Lawrence to Kansas City and $1.50 from East Lawrence to Kansas City. The mileage of KTA's roadway, from Kansas City to the Oklahoma border, stays the same at 236 miles.
