Colorado: Whether You Love Toll Lanes Or Hate ‘Em, You Can Expect Them Pretty Much Everywhere On The Front Range

On a handful of Colorado’s most crowded highways, drivers have a choice: Sit in traffic or pay a few dollars to pop into a toll lane. More Colorado highways will soon have that option, according to a new Colorado Department of Transportation Plan.

The Express Lanes Master Plan, which will be finished in December, envisions toll lanes — or as the state calls them, express lanes — on most miles of freeway in the Denver metro. The state’s even looking at adding them in heavily traveled pieces of Interstate 70 in the mountains and I-25 both north and south of Denver.
