Is CDOT Going to Charge Tolls on I-25 Between Denver and Fort Collins? [VIDEO]
The good news: CDOT is finally looking seriously at expanding I-25 in Northern Colorado. The bad news: they want to use toll lanes to pay for it.
The Coloradoan reports CDOT is considering making the 3rd lane on I-25 into a toll lane between Highway 66 and Highway 7.
In response, communities along the corridor gathered together to form the Northern I-25 Coalition, which aims to give them a unified voice and garner support for other possible funding ideas that wouldn’t take away the free third lane running through Longmont, Erie and Frederick.

The video above has more info, but what do you think? Are tolls the best way to pay for a much-needed expansion project? Or do you think there’s a better alternative that will keep all lanes of I-25 free to drive? Let us know in the comments!
