    The ExpressToll switchable transponder, switched to the HOV option to avoid paying tolls on lanes on I-25 and U.S. 36 where motorcyclists and carpoolers, with at least 2 people in the car, can use the Express-HOV lanes without paying the toll.

    If you were waiting for a chance to drive the Denver area’s newest stretch of toll lanes for free, you waited to long.

    The Colorado Department of Transportation on Tuesday started collecting tolls on the six-mile North I-25 Express Lanes between U.S.. 36 and 120th Avenue north of downtown.

    That segment of the road carries about 174,000 vehicles per day, according to the state highway agency.

    The $72 million project, paid for with the help of a $15 million federal grant, involved building one new lane in each direction of Interstate 25 between U.S. 36 and 120th Avenue.

    Toll prices will rise and fall depending on the amount of traffic using the highway.
