In 1951, the Indiana General Assembly passed legislation creating the Indiana Toll Road Commission. Construction was completed and the Toll Road opened to traffic in late 1956. In 1985, subsequent legislation authorized the Toll Finance Authority to enter into contracts or leases with the Department of Highways for the operation of all toll road and toll bridge projects. In 2006, the Indiana General Assembly authorized ITRCC to take control of the Indiana Toll Road.

As it is structured today, the Indiana Toll Road is operated and maintained by ITR Concession Company LLC. The ITRCC Administration Office is located in Granger, Ind. The staff at ITRCC is responsible for construction, maintenance, repair and operation of the Indiana Toll Road (I-80/90) projects within Indiana. It is charged with formulating, developing and recommending a continuing long-range toll road plan and short-term improvement programs. ITRCC is also responsible for communicating planning information to the public, interested agencies and organizations.

The Indiana Toll Road is operated 24 hours per day, year-round. Roadway Maintenance units continuously patrol and are in radio contact with the Toll Road’s Radio/Control Center to provide assistance to travelers.

* Please note – any toll rate transaction on the road (i.e. receipts, E-ZPass account logs, etc.) are logged in Central Standard Time along the entire length of the road.

Americans with Disabilities Act

For patrons afflicted by an upper limb disability that would impact their ability to retrieve a ticket or pay cash at a toll booth, please call the Indiana Toll Road E-ZPass Customer Service Center at (574) 675-4010 to inquire about an E-ZPass account in which the initial $10 deposit and fees shall be waived. Although fees are waived, the customer will still be required to pay tolls.

NOTE: Documentation from a licensed physician is required to verify the disability. We will not accept a Physician Assistant’s signature. If caller is a veteran, he or she may provide a statement from the Veterans Administration instead, as long as it indicates a permanent and severe upper limb mobility or dexterity impairment that substantially impairs the ability to reach outside of a vehicle window.

The patron only qualifies for this option if he or she operates a vehicle specially equipped for use by the disabled, and has a severe and permanent upper limb mobility or dexterity impairment that substantially impairs the person’s ability to reach outside the vehicle.
