The Denver Post had an item recently that the Colorado Department of Transportation is adding a third lane south of Denver on I-25 because of how busy it is.
No mention of making it a toll lane since no third lane on any major interstate is a toll lane.
Except in northern Colorado.
Plans are underway to make drivers pay to drive in a third lane throughout the Fort Collins area and to the south. Absolutely ridiculous.
I’m amazed at how people accept this in an almost sheep-like fashion. But it also explains how it happened in the first place.
Political leadership in this area is so weak and so fragmented, there is not a peep
at us being taken advantage of.
In fact, the politicians expected praise in “helping” us get the privilege of paying to drive in a third lane toll lane.
