The final two segments of the SH 130 toll road between Mustang Ridge and Seguin are now covered by tolls. The company which owns the road, in a partnership with the state, has begun charging to use the highway.
"The toll for a TxTag user is $0.15 per mile, so the entire southern portion can be traveled for $6.17," The 130 Concession Company's Chris Lippincott says.
The Texas Department of Transportation and the Concession Company are hoping to appeal to drivers of cars and big rigs to use the alternative to I-35 from north of Austin to Seguin and then I-10 into San Antonio.
"130 might not be the right road for every driver every time, but a safe and reliable alternative to I-35 congestion between Austin and San Antonio is going to be a good deal for a cars and a lot of trucks," Lippincott said.
The entire length of the road is about 90 miles and the cost of driving it from its north terminus near Highway 195 to I-10 varies whether you're driving a passenger car or an 18-wheeler.
