Accident Demonstrates Modernization Needs

We are so thankful only minor injuries occurred as a result of the April 27, 2016 early morning crash, where a semi ran through a toll booth. As unfortunate as it is, this accident highlights the reasons why KTA is working to modernize its system. An Open Road (or Gateless) Tolling system will provide a safer, free-flowing experience in the future. Click VIEW NEWS below to learn more.
