Swisher, who worked for the state Department of Transportation, had labored for the past nine years to open a high occupancy toll lane on the crowded road, and he wanted to watch the first cars use it.</p><p>"The day we opened, I hopped in the car and went out to the 58th Avenue Bridge that looks down upon the tolling zone," Swisher said. "It was probably about 2:30 in the afternoon, so I wanted to get out there and see how things are going before rush hour started."</p><p>Looking back, Swisher's moment on the bridge may have marked the beginning of a new era in Colorado transportation.</p><p> Tue, 22 Jul 2014 11:30:00 +0000 Stephanie Paige Ogburn 58974 at http://www.kunc.org Tolled Express Lanes A National Trend, And Colorado's Firmly On Board CDOT Tries Lane Experiment To Relieve I-25 Congestion http://www.kunc.org/post/cdot-tries-lane-experiment-relieve-i-25-congestion <p>The Colorado Department of Transportation is piloting new lane striping as a way to reduce traffic congestion for a stretch of southbound I-25 near Centennial.</p><p>They are creating a temporary "<a href="http://www.coloradodot.info/projects/i25sbpilotprogram">Direct Lane</a>" for through traffic between County Line and Lincoln, and will spend several weeks assessing its efficacy.
