Tobin Bridge All Electronic Tolling Sign, July 2015MassDOT is currently in the process of transitioning to All Electronic Tolling (AET) for I-90, both directions at all of the Boston tunnels and both directions of travel for the Tobin Memorial Bridge.

AET gantries, placed over the road and equipped with sensors, will electronically register tolls from vehicles that pass under any gantry. Drivers will no longer have to stop at a toll plaza and will be able to maintain a safe highway speed.

If a vehicle has an E-ZPass transponder, the toll is automatically charged to the customer’s E-ZPass account.

If a vehicle does not have an E-ZPass transponder, cameras mounted on the gantry will capture a photograph of the vehicle’s license plate and the registered owner of the vehicle will be sent an invoice. Customers who do not use an E-ZPass transponder will pay a “pay-by-plate” surcharge in addition to the toll cost.

Drivers who currently have no E-ZPass transponder are encouraged to obtain one, free of cost. For more information on obtaining a transponder, visit the E-ZPass web page.

All of the AET gantries have been installed in preparation for activation on I-90 including those in: Lee, Blandford, Westfield, Ludlow, Warren, Charlton, Hopkinton, Southborough, Framingham, Weston, Newton, Brighton, and Allston.

Tobin Bridge AET installation has been completed. Gantries will be installed the Sumner/Callahan tunnel location. AET equipment will be placed on existing structures at the Ted Williams Tunnel.
