Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

(605 ILCS 5/10-302)
(from Ch. 121, par. 10-302)
Every county which, by ordinance, determines to exercise the
powers granted by this Division of this Article has the right to acquire by
purchase or otherwise, to construct, repair, maintain and operate any such
bridge and its approaches across, above or under any railroad or public
utility right-of-way, and in, upon, under or above any public or private
road, highway, street, alley or public ground, or upon any property owned
by any municipality, political subdivision or agency of this State, and for
the purpose of acquiring property or easements necessary or incidental in
the construction, repair, maintenance or operation of any such bridge and
the approaches thereto, any such county shall have the right of eminent
domain as provided by the Eminent Domain Act. The county board of each such county has power to make, enact
and enforce all needful rules and regulations in connection with the
acquisition, construction, maintenance, operation, management, care or
protection of any such bridge, and such county board shall establish rates
of toll or charges for the use of each such bridge which shall be
sufficient at all times to pay the cost of maintenance and operation of
such bridge and its approaches, and the principal of and interest on all
bonds issued and all other obligations incurred by such county under the
provisions of this Division of this Article. Rules and regulations shall be
established from time to time by ordinance.
Rates of toll or charges for the use of each such bridge shall be
established, revised, maintained, be payable and be enforced,
including by administrative adjudication as provided in Section 10-302.5,
as the county board of each such county may determine by ordinance.
The General Assembly finds that electronic toll collection systems in Illinois should be standardized to promote safety, efficiency, and traveler convenience. If electronic toll collection is used on such bridge, the county shall configure the electronic toll collection system to be compatible with the electronic toll collection system used by the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority. The county may enter into an intergovernmental agreement with the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority to provide for such compatibility or to have the Authority provide electronic toll collection or toll violation enforcement services. Any toll bridges in Winnebago County that are in operation and collecting tolls on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 97th General Assembly are exempt from the provisions of the Act.
