Highway Speed Electronic Lanes

You’ve asked and we’ve listened. Highway speed electronic lanes are available at two of our three mainline plazas - Eastern Terminal (MM 217), East Topeka (MM 183) – and opening fall 2019 at Southern Terminal (MM 17.)

This change allows electronic users to move through the toll plaza at highway speeds while still providing a cash option. It improves safety by moving slower traffic toward the right, like a traditional exit, and makes room for more electronic customers due to compatibility with other states’ tolling systems. 

How does it work?

  • Electronic users continue traveling at highway speeds through the toll area.
  • Cash travelers exit right to toll plaza for entry ticket or toll payment.
  • Check out this graphic or watch a simulation video to see how it works.

 

Travel tips:

  • Pay attention to posted signage.

  • Don’t stop in the electronic lanes.

  •  Forgot to exit right? If you didn’t get a ticket upon entry, let your collector know (or press help button on a self-pay machine) when you exit. If you didn’t exit right to pay, your “missed toll” is considered a violation per Kansas statute and the vehicle’s registered owner will be mailed a toll statement at the video enforced rate.

  •  Get a K-TAG to keep moving at highway speeds and pay less for every toll.

If you have a K-TAG, you can manage your account online. It’s important to make sure it is properly mounted & your account is in good standing with valid contact and payment information. K-TAG customers receive email notifications about expiring and expired payment information. Make sure ktag@ksturnpike.com and estatements@ksturnpike.com is placed on your email provider’s whitelist.

If a driver exits using an electronic lane without a valid compatible transponder, the “missed toll” is considered a violation, per Kansas statute, and will be tolled at the video enforced rate based upon the vehicle’s class (see chart below).

  Class 2 Class 3 Class 4 Class 5 Class 6 Class 7 Class 8 Class 9
Video Enforced Rate $19.88 $27.38 $38.25 $52.13 $70.88 $98.63 $115.88 $127.88

 

Payment for missed tolls cannot be accepted until the trip is processed in KTA’s system and assigned a statement ID. Trips are processed within three business days and statements are typically mailed within two weeks of the trip to the vehicle’s registered owner. At that time, the video enforced fare can be paid here using information from your toll statement.
