Customer Reminder: Minimum Monthly Toll

The minimum monthly toll requirement for FasTrak customers is $3.50 per account plus $1 per transponder. Accounts with one transponder have a minimum monthly toll of $4.50. Trips on SBX and the I-15 Express Lanes count toward your minimum monthly toll. Customers who do not spend at least the minimum monthly toll will be charged the difference. For example, if you spend $3 in tolls on SBX during the calendar month and your minimum monthly toll is $4.50, your account will be charged an additional $1.50.

Interstate 805 South Express Lanes Project Update

Construction is scheduled to begin in November on Interstate 805 (I-805) at East Plaza Boulevard in National City. Work on the lanes is expected to last one year and will extend the merging distance between on- and off-ramps, improve overall freeway flow, and help alleviate congestion along I-805 in South County.

 

This project is the final piece of the first phase of the I-805 South Express Lanes Project, a $1.1 billion effort to create a modern transportation backbone that will meet the future needs of travelers in our region. The first phase included the addition of eight miles of new carpool lanes, which opened in March between East Naples Street in Chula Vista and State Route 94 in San Diego, and the construction of 10 sound walls to help lower freeway noise and improve the quality of life for nearby residents, which were completed this summer. Phase 1 also includes construction of a Direct Access Ramp (DAR), Transit Station, and Park & Ride at East Palomar Street in Chula Vista, which is currently underway.

Toll Plaza Construction Alert

Rumble strips are scheduled to be installed at the toll plaza areas by the end of the year. The strips will alert cash and credit paying drivers to the approaching stop at the toll plaza and will improve safety for everyone on the road.

Otay Mesa Toll Plaza Changes

Once construction of the rumble strips is complete in the toll plaza areas, the far right lanes at the Otay Mesa Toll Plaza (southbound and northbound) will no longer be staffed.  These lanes are the widest; trucks, semis, and trailers are encouraged to use the far right lanes.  All other lanes at the Toll Plaza will be fully staffed Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. – 8 p.m., except holidays.
