CDOT Changes Metro Denver’s I-25 to HOV-3 Effective January 1

KMGH ABC 7 reports, “Starting Jan. 1, you’ll have to have three people in your car in order to use the HOV express lanes between Denver and Boulder. Right now, it just has to be you and a passenger to ride it for free.” The report adds, “While some drivers are disappointed, the change to three was actually decided in 2013, as part of a CDOT plan to handle rapid growth. CDOT estimates growth will soar by 47 percent by 2040. Seven states already have the three-passenger occupant requirement.”
