This research presents the data collection, specification and estimation of a route choice model for intercity truck trips, with a focus on toll road usage. The data was obtained from driver-validated and enhanced GPS records. A mixed logit model with a path-size factor is specified. It accounts for heterogeneity among drivers using distributed coefficients for travel time and its variability. The estimation results show wide heterogeneity among drivers based on employment type and availability of electronic toll collection tags. Toll value of time and toll value of reliability distributions are derived. The model application is demonstrated on several trip corridors.
