Tolling is a hot topic in Oregon.
A toll is a user fee. In this context, a fee imposed to drive on a road or bridge. Currently, the only toll collected in Oregon are on the Bridge of the Gods and the Hood River Bridge. In 2017, the legislature passed a law allowing tolls on I-205 and I-5. In 2022, the project has been placed on a 2-year hold due concerns about traffic shifting to local roadways.
Tualatin Chamber of Commerce maintains a website which is designed to educate and inform Tualatin businesses and citizens about current facts on the tolling issues.
