The 50-year long contract to expand U.S. 36 is one step closer to being finalized despite an outcry of public opposition.
CDOT is entering a 50 year contract with a private party, giving them control over the express lanes that will be built along Highway 36.
The Colorado Department of Transportation might tighten the rules for who can use the express lanes on Interstate 25 without paying a toll.
Commuters who used the I-25 HOV/Tolled Express Lanes from 7:30 to 10:30 Wednesday morning will not be charged tolls.
Commuters along I-25 may have noticed more congestion and RTD buses Wednesday morning. The gates for the HOV lanes were frozen in the wrong position because of the cold.
