The tunnel was built to transport building materials for the construction of the Punt dal Gall dam. It was opened for public use in 1968, but is still owned and operated by the hydroelectric power company Engadiner Kraftwerke AG. The tunnel is only wide enough for a single vehicle so traffic moves in alternate directions, controlled by traffic lights which change every 15 minutes. (A different pattern of alternating traffic applies on Saturdays in winter.) The tunnel is open 24 hours a day to motor vehicles no more than in height and in width but since 2008 it is closed to cyclists. From June to September, cyclists may take their cycles on a half-hourly shuttle bus, and at other times they may use a limited number of places on the public bus service.
As of May 2015, the standard daytime toll for a single car journey through the tunnel is CHF16/EUR15. Slightly higher tolls are charged at night.

Il paesaggio merita davvero, ma il passaggio del tunnel è molto caro 15 euro per attraversare solo (se non erro) 3,5 km. di montagna! Bravi gli svizzeri a guadagnarci così tanto.. more »The landscape really deserves, but the passage of the tunnel is very expensive 15 euros to cross only (if I am not mistaken) 3.5 km. Mountain! Good for the Swiss to earn so much..
Excellent tunnel for those coming and going from Trentino in Lombardy.. Return from Val Venosta.. and continued with a mandatory stop in Livigno and then descend the Valtellina.. Price a bit expensive despite paid on the web.. € 17..ma it was worth it..
Now I work from 3 years in Livigno but I can not understand how you can pay so much! And then all I'm great tunnel I do not see it! CMQ only speed road to go to Switzerland/Germany/Austria and Bolzano/Merano in winter since the Forcola is not cleaned and then closed to transit.
