New Toll Booths for 2020

Tuesday, March 17, 2020 5:55 PM

If you are a past employee and part of the alumni FB page, someone just posted a pic of the toll booth progress. I wish I knew how to post pics on here.

Save photo to your computer or phone, upload to a site such as imgur, then paste the URL here.

The URL needs [img] [/img] tags as well if you want it embedded. (Show the actual pic instead of the link)

Regarding the toll booths. Maybe they can be used for drive thru testing this summer.

On Monday I was right where that car that took the photo is ( I know, the car didn't take the picture). Just to the left of that cars' location was an extra large flatbed with an enormous steel structure on it. I thought it could be one of the following; either a roof structure for an additional booth area from the chausee area, or a bridge structure for the new paddle-boat ride.

Given the location, I would assume it's not for the bridge. Otherwise they probably would have staged it closer to its final destination.

Thanks for the humor WolfBobs. But it would have been better if you said - that’s what your mom said.

I'm wondering if these self scan lanes will now be ready by the new opening day. This should give them a little extra time to polish everything up.

Looking at that photo and all that soil where I believe concrete pavement should be kind of has me concerned even with a delayed mid May opening.

But as long as ODOT isn’t involved there still may be a chance.

It appears to me that each or most of the vehicle lanes that approach the booth structure have cement curbs, dividing the lanes. The curbing begins approx. 200 yards prior to the structure. I suppose you will have to judicially choose your lane and hope it is a "mover". Don't follow me, whichever line I choose at any establishment always has difficulties. No last second lane changes except for monster trucks.

I noticed someone posted recent pics of the new toll booths on another site. Not going to post pics or the link since not knowing if the photographer was given permission to take the photos. But, it really looks good!

The photos can be seen on a Facebook page called CP Rundown.

If you scroll up I already posted a picture from awhile back so I don't think there is any problem in posting new ones.
