Tolls begin Aug. 18, 2020 on C-470 Express Lanes between Wadsworth Boulevard and I-25

Information provided by the Colorado Department of Transportation

Posted on August 17, 2020 2020Breaking NewsTransportation


Tolls will begin on Tuesday, Aug. 18 on the C-470 Express Lanes between Wadsworth Boulevard and I-25. Tolls will range from 65 cents to $3.60 per toll point with an ExpressToll pass, depending on the time of day. The tolls have been waived since mid-June when the Express Lanes opened for testing. Motorists can continue to use the new lanes for free until Aug. 18.

Once tolling begins, drivers will have the choice of taking the Express Lanes, which will be available 24 hours a day, for a faster, more reliable travel time in exchange for a toll. Motorcycles will be able to use the lanes for free. All travelers can take the general purpose lanes for free, and Express Lanes help improve travel times in the general purpose lanes as well. To save money on tolls, drivers are encouraged to get an ExpressToll pass. Please note that the Switchable HOV Transponder will not provide an HOV discount on the C-470 Express Lanes, even when positioned in the “HOV” mode.

Below are some rules on how to use the C-470 Express Lanes:

About C-470 Express Lanes: The project added two Express Lanes westbound from I-25 to Colorado Boulevard and one Express Lane westbound from Colorado Boulevard to Wadsworth Boulevard, as well as one Express Lane eastbound from just west of the Platte River to I-25.

In addition to the new Express Lanes, the project reconstructed a portion of the existing pavement and added auxiliary lanes between interchanges, improved portions of on- and off-ramps, widened the existing bridges throughout the project area and replaced the bridges over the South Platte River, installed water-quality features and noise barriers, installed Intelligent Transportation Systems elements and tolling equipment and added grade separations for the multi-use trail at Quebec Street and Colorado Boulevard.
