MORRISVILLE, NC (AP) — North Carolina’s first toll road is almost ready for drivers, and the state has begun selling electronic passes for people who plan to drive the expressway.

The state Department of Transportation says the Quick Pass Customer Service Center will open Tuesday in Morrisville. Shortly after the opening, toll transponders will go on sale to the general public.

The first phase of the Triangle Expressway is scheduled to open in December. The road will ultimately extend to nearly 19 miles between Holly Springs and Research Triangle Park.

Tolls will be collected electronically, so there will be no booths. Drivers who don’t buy a transponder will have their license plates photographed and will get a bill in the mail.

Transponders will cost $5 and can be bought online at www.ncquickpass.com.
