Hwy 288 Expressway Raises Toll Rates

By
Real Estate Agent with JLA Realty TREC # 0524744

If you drive the Brazoria County section of the 288 Toll Road, you may have noticed they raised the rates of the two gantries, where drivers are charged for using the express lanes, to a total of $2.65 heading north or southbound — charging $1 at the CR 58 gantry and $1.65 at the McHard Road gantry. The previous rate was $1.80. The way I see it, it will cost a driver approximately $25 a day roundtrip.


Brazoria County Engineer Matt Hanks said it was because of inflation, market share and total congestion. WOW

288 Toll road


The people of Brazoria County that use the 28 Expressway are having to pay the lion's share to use this toll road.

I feel this toll road has become one of the most expensive per mile toll roads in Texas.  

Caveat emptor - “let the buyer beware."

Wow, this sounds like great news to get out to the community. $25 a day is a lot!

(As an aside, we have no toll roads here in NW MT... a resident was telling me that he had to drive through a few states and the first time he got to a toll booth he had no idea what to do - he'd never seen one before. hahaha)
