KTA creates three 'open tolls' on Kansas turnpike

Kansas Turnpike Authority

If you have a K-Tag, you will soon be able to drive through the Kansas Turnpike plaza in Kansas City at full speed.

The Turnpike Authority is changing three plazas into what they call open toll or "gateless" toll roads.

The new booth will open for the Kansas City plaza next week.

The east Topeka open toll road will open next fall with the plaza in Wellington opening in 2019.

These plazas do not have on or off ramps to slow traffic.

With the new open toll roads, only people who have to pay will need to pull over or slow down.
