  The Elgin-O’Hare expressway will transition from a freeway to a toll road on July 5th. 

The Daily-Herald reports that users of the  I-Pass transponder will pay $1.25 for the six-mile stretch of road.  Drivers who choose to use cash will pay double that amount.  Officials say funds from the tollway will rehabilitate the existing express route and help construct new ramps at I-290.
