New tolling equipment, website for Wabash Pass users

Posted: Updated:
POSEY CO., IN (WFIE) -

The Wabash Memorial Toll Bridge is improving customer service and enhancing toll collection services while maintaining the convenience of no-stop tolling. During pavement repairs to Indiana State Road 62 approaching the bridge, workers installed new electronic tolling equipment with message boards for improved communication.

The improvements require no changes to current Wabash Pass transponders. Existing accounts logging in to www.wabashpass.com will be asked to update account information, including a valid email address. The enhanced Wabash Pass website allows customers to auto-replenish toll payment accounts.

Motorists crossing the Wabash Memorial Toll Bridge must maintain a Wabash Pass account balance and affix the transponder tag to their vehicle's front windshield. To create an account, make a payment or order a transponder tag, please visit www.wabashpass.com or call toll free 1-855-Wabash1 (1-855-922-2741).

Tolls for the bridge connecting White County, Ill., and Posey County, Ind., are 50 cents for cars, 30 cents for motorcycles or bicycles and $1.70 for six-axle trucks. Tolls have not been increased since 1984 and pay for continued maintenance of the bridge, which opened in 1956.
