The Illinois Tollway will no longer accept cash payments for tolls. The permanent change was announced yesterday, almost a year after the Illinois Tollway took away the option in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Payments must now be made with I-PASS or E-Zpass transponders, or online. Drivers who don’t use an I-Pass and E-ZPass have a 14-day grace period to pay their tolls until they’re slapped with a three-dollar fine.
