ABSTRACT
The article reports on the approval of a rate schedule for a toll facility that rises prices during rush hours and drops them when there are no traffic jams by the Colorado Tolling Enterprise board. The facility consists of two reversible lanes that are opened in a systematic way during the morning and the afternoon. Officials are looking at new toll-road options that would be financed by toll revenue bonds or in private-public partnerships.
