Maryland toll facilities are administered by the Maryland Transportation Authority.

The construction and maintenance of many roads in Maryland have been paid for with State and federal taxes. However, while transportation needs have increased, government budgets have decreased.

Toll roads offer a way to meet transportation challenges without raising taxes. Only those who use the facilities are charged for their upkeep and maintenance.

Roads are tolled for four reasons:

  • To pay for a roadway that can’t be built soon enough with available resources
  • To pay for the continued maintenance and operation of a roadway
  • To pay for other transportation improvements in the area, such as work on highways, bridges and tunnels, travel plazas or toll facilities
  • To help with traffic management and congestion

Toll roads offer economic, quality of life and safety benefits that can be delivered years sooner than they could be using other funding methods.
