Proposed bill charges $8 per semi truck leaving intermodal yard in Illinois

Published:

A proposed bill would allow counties to charge semi trucks up to $8 just for hauling good from a intermodal yard in Illinois. 

The proposed bill, brought forward by Illinois Senator Rachel Ventura, would allow municipalities and counties to charge semi trucks carrying goods from an intermodal yard in Illinois between 50 cents and $8. 

“We have the highest amount of truck traffic around any intermodal in the entire state,” Ventura said of the impact on roads in her 43rd District.

The fees could generate $38 million a year reported Herald-News. The Illinois Department of Transportation would then use the funds for road repairs.
