Tolls on Highways 412 and 418 in Durham Region have been dropped.
Premier Doug Ford announced the move in February and it took effect Tuesday.
“The unfair and expensive tolls on Highways 412 and 418 are officially gone for good,” Ford said in a news release.
“While the previous government imposed these tolls on drivers, our government is getting rid of them.”
The province said the removal of the tolls will help keep costs down for drivers in the region, relieve gridlock, provide more transportation options, and encourage economic growth.
Ford and Transportation Minister Caroline Mulroney were in Whitby Tuesday morning to mark the removal of the tolls.
Highways 412 and 418 are two north-south highways connecting Highways 401 and 407 in Durham.
The government said 412 and 418 were the only tolled north-south highways in the province.
Tolls on the privately owned Highway 407, meanwhile, remain unchanged.
