Toll collection will begin Tuesday morning on the first leg of the Triangle Expressway, which extends N.C. 147 through Research Triangle Park from I-40 to the 540 Outer Loop. [1/2/11 update: see today's story with reader comments.]
The road opened for toll-free traffic earlier this month, so RTP commuters and other drivers could try it out.
The cost for this 3.7-mile section of TriEx will be 50 cents per trip for folks with N.C. Quick Pass transponders, 77 cents for the rest of us.
So how do you like it? Do you like it enough to pay a toll? Will it make your daily drive easier? If you drive TriEx Tuesday, please share your thoughts -- and your name and workday phone number -- by email or by phone (919-829-4527).
