Union County Officials Announce Opening of Monroe Expressway.

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Travelers who used the new Monroe Expressway since its November opening will receive their first bill in the mail soon.

Those who drove on the road without a NC Quick Pass transponder account are expected to receive an invoice 30 days after traveling on the toll road. Invoices will be sent to the address of the registered owner of the vehicle.

State mandated late fees will be applied to invoices not paid by the printed due date.

“We don’t want our customers to pay any more than they have to, so please treat your NC Quick Pass invoice like any other bill you would receive in the mail,” said Turnpike Authority Executive Director Beau Memory. “While the invoice may only be a few dollars, please pay it on time to avoid potential fees.”

Drivers who want to avoid receiving bills in the mail have the option to sign up for a NC Quick Pass transponder which can be used throughout North Carolina and out-of-state toll roads that accept Peach Pass, SunPass or E-ZPass.

Customers who sign up for a transponder will save up to 35% on tolls.

The 18-mile Monroe Expressway opened Nov. 27 and stretches from east of the I-485 and U.S. 74 interchange in Matthews to west of Marshville. Drivers can visit to sign up for an account.
