Eastern Distributor North Bound first Tunnel

There is a first tunnel on the ED (just before Link Road), Google Maps (GM) will sometimes recommend you take it and exit on to South Dowling St before the Cleveland st intersection. GM will show it as not being tolled. But I thought north bound on the ED has a toll.
Is the toll sensor further ahead so if you use that exit you will not be billed. When South Dowling st is packed it can save you a few minutes. As that exit forces the traffic on South Dowling to merge to one lane.

Yes, the Cleveland Street exit (at Maddison) on the ED Northbound is not tolled (yet) however it's closed during morning and afternoon M-F peak.

The Cleveland st exit should be closed permanently. It creates traffic mayhem along South Dowling street which has to merge into one lane to accomodate the few cars using the Cleveland st exit.
