A 7-mile stretch of Colorado’s Interstate 25 now has a tolled express lane that will cost truckers $18 per trip. One of the existing high-occupancy vehicle lanes between downtown Denver and U.S. 36 has been converted to the multiuse tolled express lane. The remaining HOV lane will continue to be free for carpools, motorcyclists and buses.

Noncommercial vehicles will pay 50 cents to $3.25 to use the express lane, depending on time of day. Vehicles using it without a transponder will receive a $70 citation by mail. Drivers can get a transponder and create an online account at www.expresstoll.com or by calling 888-946-3470.
