    Rep. Eric Turner long enjoyed a position of power at the right hand – some would say the far right hand – of Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma. It’s fair to say the ties between them now are irrevocably broken.

Toll road rates set to rise on Sunday just not for everybody

The Indiana Toll Road lease proceeds might be all but gone, but the operators’ authority to raise toll rates lives on – as motorists will discover Sunday.

The cost of driving the toll road from the Ohio border to Illinois will increase by 40 cents effective Sunday, with tolls at all toll booths increasing by an average of 3.15 percent.

Motorists with an I-Zoom or EZPass transponder will be exempt from the increase, however. The state negotiated a deal with ITR Concession Inc., the private operator, to hold rates steady for transponder users until 2016. That would include some Indiana lawmakers. ITR sent free-of-charge devices to 38 lawmakers in northern Indiana, although some rejected the perk.

The cost of driving the full length of the Toll Road will be $9.40 for cars. It was $4.65 before the road was leased in 2006. A tractor-trailer driver will pay $37.40.
