I'll be traveling i90 from kennewick, WA to Pembroke , MA in a few weeks and was wondering what to expect for tolls along that route

Assuming you're bringing the TT, you're looking at about $75 for NY and MA. Sorry, can't speak for the other states along the way. I live one town over from Pembroke, and IMHO the best way to get here from I90 is I495S to 44E to 3N. Most GPS will take you to 95S, but you pick that up in the middle of Boston, which can be a nightmare to get through.

We have towed from Buffalo NY to Syracuse NY for $12. It seems the more populated areas farther east are more expensive for toll rates.

You might want to explore the possibility of taking I-80 east from Cleveland, OH, to I-81 north in PA, to I-380 in Scranton, PA, to I-84 east returning onto I-90 (Massachusetts Turnpike) near Sturbridge, MA.

The route is toll-free to the PA/NY state line.

IL and IN have tolls on that Interstate. With the trailer my off hand guess is about $40 - $50 for both states.

Don't know if you have enough time to get one, but you might consider an I-Pass. It'll work in IL and IN, as well as most places out east that use the EZ-Pass. And you can breeze right through without stopping at every toll both. In IL you get half off all tolls using the I-Pass. I'm not sure if that applies to other states.

Its $50, a $10 deposit (refundable) and $40 to start your account. The disadvantage is that when you use up each $40 increment, it'll load another $40 from your credit card. When you are done with the tolls, you might be out a few bucks.

Even if you lose a few bucks, the time saved and hassles pulling back into traffic might be worth it.

DocBrown, this is only true for cars that are not towing. Anyone towing a 1-2 axle trailer pays the same rate as a medium truck for the time of day you are traveling. (See Vehicle Categories.) I tow on the tollway all the time but my wallet hates it when I do. It's still better than taking local roads with a million stop lights.

Here is the list of the Rates by Toll Plaza for the IL Tollway. There is also a trip calculator that might help you. Just remember to choose medium truck as your vehicle.

You do not need a special transponder for towing but you should include the license plates for the truck and trailer on your account. (see Step 3: Drive the Tollway and Can I use my regular I-PASS when I tow a trailer or drive an RV?)

And yes, I-Pass will work on all EZ Pass systems, but when towing you might need a special "blue" EZ Pass transponder. (See Where can I use my I-Pass?) On I-Pass you can go through any lane with a trailer without stopping. However on the EZ Pass system it varies by toll authority. This is what I found in my research on this subject about a year ago.

You don't need a special transponder and can go through any EZ Pass Lane
•Burlington County Bridge Commission
•Chicago Skyway
•Delaware Department of Transportation
•Delaware River and Bay Authority
•Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission
•Delaware River Port Authority
•Illinois State Toll Highway Authority
•Indiana Toll Road Concession Company
•Maine Turnpike Authority
•Massachusetts Department of Transportation
•Maryland Transportation Authority
•New Hampshire Department of Transportation
•New Jersey Turnpike Authority
•North Carolina Turnpike Authority
•Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission
•Port Authority of New York and New Jersey
•Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority
•South Jersey Transportation Authority
•Triborough Bridge & Tunnel Authority

You need a special transponder
•Recommended in many states if you tow all the time, but that is geared for residents, not us
•Virginia Department of Transportation

You need to go to the manual lane and they will count your axles and charge your EZ Pass account accordingly
•Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority
•New York State Bridge Authority
•New York State Thruway Authority

No information available on website (probably should call)
•Ohio Turnpike Commission
•West Virginia Turnpike

If it was me, I would just get the EZ Pass. And no, I don't work for the Tollway. This is probably more than you needed to know but no one ever suffered from too much knowledge. Hope this helps!

There are toll calculators that you can use to estimate your trip. 80 is good, but 84 has some steep climbs and descends after the Hudson entering CT with very few easy on off access for stops. route 90 you could stop in Niagra Falls or the Finger lakes region too.

Here is a link for the NYS Thruway system and it's only a few dollars cheaper for EZ Pass towing vs cash unless you have a 5'er. Mass has one too. Just plug in your axles and distance to calculate.

http://www.thruway.ny.gov/travelers/tolls/calc/trip.cgi

The blue tags are required to get the 5'er discounts. Yes the cash lines can be long on certain days like weekends or Friday nights around Albany.

FYI: there is still 1 toll on I-80 in IL. In IN and OH I-80 and I-90 are both the turnpike with tolls.

Oops. The information is incorrect in my previous posting. The toll-free portion of I-80 begins after you leave the Ohio Turnpike at exit 218 which is near Youngstown, OH.

Sorry about that!
