With the coming of summer many Inland Empire residents begin to plan their weekend beach trips with the anxious anticipation of escaping the blazing heat and enjoying the So Cal surf! Many drivers have discovered the time savings of taking the toll roads to the beaches of south Orange County and many who make the trip frequently have the FasTrack transponders already to avoid stopping to pay the toll with cash however starting on May 14 the toll booths have been closed. State routes 73, 133, 241 and 261 now require either a FasTrak or an electronic payment made online so if you are planning a beach get away you should check out the TollRoads website. If you don’t want to set up a full FasTrac account they have an easy ExpressAccount that allows for payments to be made in advance AND after a trip has been made for those who may have forgot that the tool booths are closed! The sun is warming things up in the Inland Empire and those waves are a calling, start your beach trip HERE and take the toll roads so you can avoid that 91 traffic!
