DENVER (AP) - Colorado highway managers say that toll lanes on Interstate 70 between Denver and the mountain resorts are probably on the way.
The Denver Post reports that a $3.5 billion plan under consideration would add a reversible express tollway, two or three lanes wide, stretching about 53 miles between C-470 and Silverthorne (http://bit.ly/1b5npob ).
The newspaper reports that officials believe toll lanes are necessary to unclog weekend traffic spilling over the high mountain passes of I-70.
The Colorado Department of Transportation plans another study to review options for reducing interstate traffic. But a CDOT official tells the newspaper that any plan is likely to include tolls.
