Colorado State Patrol Requests More Funding to Police US 36 Toll Lanes

The Denver Post reports, “Speeding motorists and lane dodgers are contributing to hazardous conditions in the managed lanes on U.S. 36 between Denver and Boulder, prompting the State Patrol to ask the legislature for more than $200,000 this coming year to beef up patrols along the heavily traveled corridor.” The report adds, “The State Patrol requested and received a similar increase for patrolling along the E-470 highway corridor in fiscal year 2016-17.”
