Toll Roads

So I traveled 34 miles of the toll road section of I-70 in Kansas with our trailer in tow and it costs me $5.00. I traveled 27 miles of the toll road E-470 in Colorado and according to their website I will be billed $28.35 for 4 axles. Me thinks Colorado is ripping people off.

I fly into Denver for business all the time and E-470 is a rip off, unless you need to get to the airport during rush hours and leave late forget it.

It's been 17 days since we used E-470 and still no bill in the mail. I wonder if I'm going to get lucky and catch a break.

Give'em time. You will get a bill!! You can count on one hand how many times I've been on that road because it's so expensive. There are many ways to bypass E-470 and Denver for that matter. Just have to get a map and make a plan. If your on I-70 and wanting to go north of Denver on I-25, Look north of Bennett for a town called Prospect Valley and from There you can look at several routes to get onto I25. That's what we do and you don't have the traffic and can miss Denver all together.

Jinxing Myself

I still have received a bill in the mail for using E-470 in Colorado.

If it takes much longer I won't even remember being in Colorado. My memory isn't as good as it used to be. I know I can pay online but I never voluntarily give my money away. I want to see the physical bill and then I'll pay. Course I'm still hoping they missed me.

Well, it's been two months since we drove E-470 in Colorado and we still haven't been billed. Not that I'm complaining, but I don't think that a toll road without toll booths works very well.

You're sounding very guilt-ridden...you should just remit the toll so you'll feel better!
