I-70 Toll Road in Kansas

We are driving west to east on I-70 from Salina, KS, through Topeka, KS and Kansas City to Higginsville, MO.  We usually avoid toll roads, but in this case we will use the toll road (rather than wind through on State and County Roads).  We will pay cash at the toll booths.  Are there designated toll booths for Big Rigs (we're 13'6" H), and what side of the toll exchange are they?  Right? Left?

Thank you.

The Kansas Turnpike does not have toll booths like some where you pay periodically. You get a ticket getting on and then pay when you leave. You may not even have to bother with that if you have a transponder from a reciprocal state, for example, my TxTag in Texas works on the Kansas Turnpike.

My KTag works in Oklahoma, not sure about other states. They have new free stickers that work on almost any vehicle, but you cannot move them from vehicle to vehicle. I have one for my Truck, Jeep and Motorcycle. I also got one for my daughters car in Oklahoma. She doesn't travel much on the turnpikes, but at least she doesn't have to stop or remember to take cash. The only place I would drive around a toll road is in Colorado. The tolls are high and they have a booth every 10 miles or so it seemed. That was several years ago, but $20 disappeared very quickly on what seemed like a very short trip on the toll way. I got off at the next free exit when I got to that amount.

Yep, Colorado tolls are outrageous but that is what comes from a toll road owned by a private entity vs. a public entity.

K Tags work in KS, OK and TX. OK and TX systems are reciprocal in all three, as well. Jay
