TRANSPORTATION NEWS
Due to an increase in sales tax, the price of the Switchable HOV Transponder increases to $18 on June 5, 2019. With three or more people in the vehicle, the Switchable HOV Transponder allows you to drive for free in CDOT's HOV Express Lanes, which are currently on US 36 and I-25. If you are an HOV-only customer, transponders will still be free.
Crews are actively improving an 18-mile stretch of I-25 known as "The Gap" from Castle Rock to Monument. Changes will include improved safety for travelers and wildlife, bridge reconstruction, Express Lanes, new pavement, and more. The project is slated to be complete by 2022.   View the latest construction impacts.

Express Lanes construction on North I-25 is continuing through winter 2019. Work began on the next phase of the I-25 North Express Lanes Project in March, including pavement resurfacing, plus the installation of concrete median barriers and new Express Lanes tolling infrastructure. Learn about the features and latest traveler impacts. View the project website.
