The Houbolt Road Extension is an “all-electronic” toll facility (meaning no stopping at a toll booth) designed to provide users with a smooth and easy drive and help reduce fuel consumption by eliminating the need to stop for toll payment.

Establishing an account with an I-PASS or E-ZPass transponder is the fastest and lowest-cost option to pay your Houbolt Road Extension tolls. Sensors on an overhead structure read the transponder and capture an image of the vehicle’s license plate. This electronic form of payment for your tolls is also used on the neighboring Illinois Tollway, Chicago Skyway and Indiana Toll Road.

If crossing without a valid, funded, and appropriately registered I-PASS or E-ZPass account, the registered vehicle owner will be mailed an invoice for tolls.
