Colorado Springs, CO: Construction begins on I-25 “Gap” toll lanes

Not mentioned in the Jan. 22 news release from commissioners is the fact users of the additional lanes will be charged a toll, which sparked anger among some citizens. The grant was predicated on the toll lanes, though commissioners didn’t reveal that to citizens until after the application was submitted in 2017. Nor were voters told of the toll lanes when asked in 2017 to approve funding from county coffers, an initiative that passed.
