No Toll on I-25. Rep Lundeen fights to restore his amendment prohibiting toll of I-25 south that was striped from transportation bill by Democrat controlled Colorado House.
Rep Lundeen drafted language that would prohibit the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) from tolling I-25 south, scheduled for start of construction this fall. That language was inserted in the primary transportation legislation in the Republican controlled Senate. When the bill came to the Democrat controlled House of Representatives the majority party stripped the language. Vowing to stop the toll on the new third lane with "every fiber of his being" Rep Lundeen fought to restore the "No-Toll" language. He also made clear that the current plan if looked a creatively provides enough concrete to connect Monument and Castle Rock with four lanes of capacity.
