FRISCO, Colo. (AP) - The Colorado Department of Transportation plans to open a new express lane on the way to Vail in time for this year’s ski season.

The Summit Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1MHWxRi ) that the toll lane on Interstate 70 will run between Empire and Floyd Hill and be a way to reduce congestion during peak hours.

CDOT officials say the lane would be open as a toll road 72 days out of the year, targeting the busy ski season and summer holiday weekends. Otherwise the lane will be a shoulder for safety and snowplowing purposes.

Tolls will range from about $3 to $30 per car depending on traffic.

CDOT spokeswoman Amy Ford says fluctuating tolls will limit drivers in the lane, keep traffic moving and help recoup the cost of construction.
