Kentucky’s toll parkway system had the last of its tolls removed a couple years ago. Also, the Astoria Bridge (Route 101) between Oregon and Washington had its tolls removed in 1993.

Here in Houston we have our toll roads and we have our increasing money diversions away from highways, simply because tolls are the EASIEST way to collect money from people - since most cannot do the math to find out that highways are VERY CHEAP to build and maintain, relative to the amount of money that can collected from captive drivers.
