Next OTA's turnpike up for conversion to cashless tolling: the Chickasaw Turnpike, which will be relatively easy to convert.

Quote from the article: "After the Chickasaw Turnpike's conversion, next up will be the Cimarron and Creek turnpikes."

Looks like the Chickasaw Turnpike’s conversion is complete.

That's good for the coyotes. They seem to use the Chickasaw Turnpike more than humans do. Since they don't have pockets, cash tolling was always a bit of a chore for them.

 :rofl:

Also, I found this info on the PlatePay website (https://www.platepay.com/):
"The Cimarron Turnpike will be the next turnpike to convert to PlatePay in fall 2022, followed by (order subject to change) the Creek, Cherokee, Muskogee, Indian Nation, Will Rogers, and Turner turnpikes."

The H.E. Bailey Turnpike is technically set up for all cash-less tolling now. OTA still has a lot of construction work to do however. The Newcastle toll plaza on I-44 needs very serious modification in order to restore traffic flow to 2 lanes in both directions. The OK-5/I-44 interchange where the Walters toll plaza was located needs to be completely rebuilt. There is nothing physically wrong with the I-44 toll plaza between Lawton and Chickasha. It's only a shame the plaza was completed around 3 or 4 years ago, with human operated cash toll booths -only for them to be shut down permanently. Waste of money. At least that toll plaza has 2 PikePass lanes running in both directions.

The Newcastle toll plaza is probably the most urgent situation to fix. Still, that OK-5/I-44 interchange at Walters is pretty bad.

The Cimarron Turnpike(US-412) should be mostly completed by the end of this week with the US-64, US-177 and the Stillwater Spur toll plazas to be finished by the end of the year:

Are they saving I-44 for last in their conversion to cashless tolling?

The H.E. Bailey Turnpike (I-44 from OKC to the Red River) has been cash-less for around a year now.

I suppose they could be saving the Turner Turnpike for the last cash-less conversion since it is the busiest in the system.

When might the Turner and Will Rogers be going cashless? I drove both last Sunday and had to pay cash.

Those two will be the last two to convert to cashless tolling, which will happen sometime in late 2024 or early 2025...

As far as the schedule goes, I believe that the Muskogee Turnpike will be next up in line, followed by Indian Nation, Will Rogers, and Turner Turnpikes.

It's nice they've finally been doing something after years of delays.

And speaking of Florida, it seems like it has been probably a decade since I first heard talk of an interoperability agreement between PikePass and SunPass.

Not all of them yet, apparently. Toll roads operated by the Central Florida Expressway Authority, which include a bunch of roads in the Orlando area, are supposed to become compatible later in 2023.

Some of the construction work on that toll plaza is visible in Google Earth (12/2022 imagery). It's long overdue for them to do something about that crumbling OK-5 bridge crossing over the plaza.
