WASHINGTON -- The Intercounty Connector is Maryland's first ever all electronic toll road, which helps traffic to keep moving rather than slow down.
Tolls are tacked on to your E-ZPass while overhead transponders recognize where you get on and off the road.
If you don't have an E-ZPass and you want to drive the ICC, be prepared to pay more. You will be sent a bill for 150 percent of the original toll.
For example, the $4 it would normally cost to ride end to end would wind up being $6 without E-ZPass.
The road is free to try out through Dec. 4th.
