Spend More Time in Frisco and Less Time On I70

I70 is the primary route to Frisco. I70 is congestion-free the majority of the time and with just a little bit of planning you can have “More Mountains and Less Traffic”. Learn the best times to travel, access real-time road & traffic resources, get great Sunday deals and more by visiting GoI70’s website.

Mountain Express Lane

A new eastbound toll lane runs between Empire and Idaho Springs and operates during peak travel times. Before using this lane keep in mind that the amount of traffic determines pricing, ensuring the lane is always moving reliably.  If you don’t have an express toll pass, you will be billed through a license plate toll at a higher rate.

Traction Law / Passenger Vehicle Chain Law

If conditions require, the following laws could be implemented:

Traction Law – Motorists need snow tires, mud/snow tires, or a four-wheel/all -wheel drive vehicle – all tires must have minimum 1/8 inch tread.
