The International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association (IBTTA) has offered its congratulations to Joe Biden.

While the result of the US election is contested by current president Donald Trump, the tolling organisation has made its opinion clear on the matter.

“IBTTA congratulates president-elect Joe Biden and vice president-elect Kamala Harris on their historic election victory," ran a statement from Pat Jones, IBTTA executive director and CEO.

"From the new express lanes along State Highway 288 near Houston to the implementation of all electronic tolling across the length of the Pennsylvania Turnpike – America’s first superhighway – tolling is a powerful and effective tool to fund and finance road infrastructure and reduce congestion." 

The statement concludes: "IBTTA and its members stand ready to work with Congress and the new Biden Administration to reinvest in our vital infrastructure and help America recover from Covid-19.”
