If you drive on I-25 between Castle Rock and Monument, prepare for tolling in the Express Lanes to be activated next week. Starting Wednesday, Jan. 17, CDOT will begin collecting tolls on the I-25 South Gap Express Lanes. These lanes run adjacent to the general-purpose lanes in either direction along I-25 between Monument and Castle Rock. The lanes are open 24/7 and feature traffic management systems to reduce congestion and provide Colorado drivers with a reliable, time-saving option at any time of day. The Express Lanes are free to motorcycles, transit vehicles and vehicles with three or more people that have a switchable HOV transponder.
Tolls will range from 70 cents to $2 with an ExpressToll pass, and overhead signs will indicate current toll prices. The rate will depend on the time of day, and license plate fees will apply should a driver not have a pass. Tolls will be collected through ExpressToll accounts or License Plate Toll. Drivers can save an average of 40% on tolls with an ExpressToll pass.
Signing up is easy:
- Visit expresstoll.com and create an account.
- Prepay $35 in tolls to get you on the road to success in Express Lanes.
- Choose to receive either a sticker transponder or a HOV3+ switchable transponder.
- When your transponder arrives in the mail, clean and dry the inside center of your windshield, below the rear-view mirror. Peel off the adhesive and secure the transponder to your windshield.
