Denver prefers tolls to taxes
An opinion survey conducted for Colorado DOT (CODOT) finds very strong support for toll express lanes (TELs) in a survey of people within 2 miles of existing tollroads or planned TELs.
78% see TELs as a good way to reduce congestion on Denver area highways, and 66% approve of them as a means of facilitating traffic flow.
68% of those surveyed see tolling as a good way to finance extra capacity, whereas there is strong majority opposition to raising taxes to fund extra capacity.
