DENVER (AP) - Interstate 70 travelers will get to weigh in on proposed toll rates for an express lane scheduled to open in December for ski traffic.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/1NXyZq6 ) that Colorado Department of Transportation officials have suggested rates ranging from $3 to $30 for the 13-mile, eastbound-only stretch near Idaho Springs. At the maximum suggested toll rate, drivers would pay $2.31 a mile to travel in the express lane, which would put the cost at a higher rate than any other toll road in the country.

The eastbound I-70 will be unique to other traditional toll roads as it will still provide two general-purpose lanes to ride in free of charge.

A public meeting on the toll rate will be held Tuesday at the Elks Lodge in Idaho Springs.
