Toll prices try Colorado

Don't use E 470 unless you want to pay for the road all by yourself.
I drove both ways around Denver on this toll road. There wasn't one posted price. This toll road is 47 miles. I got a bill for $63.90.
I will be going thru other states from now on.

the toll prices on 470 are posted at every toll station. They are not friendly to anything with more than 2 axles or over 10,000 gvwr.

Towing your toad adds a ridiculous surcharge. I use 225 to 70 and then 270 back to 25 when going north. skips the denver traffic on 25 and no tolls

The I-470 tolls for RVs are pretty steep. The road is fine if you're a commuter and don't want to deal with I-25 & I-70 during congested times. When I travel around Denver, To go S I use U.S. 6 from the west to I-25 S to avoid some of the slow areas. To go towards the N, use I-76.

From the East, I-225 S to I-25. to go toward Colorado Springs. If going N, take I-270 N to I-25 N.

It's not perfect, but you avoid some of the slow spots. If you really know Denver, there are other surface streets you can use. If you know you want to head south from Kansas I-70, take U.S. 24 to Colorado Springs.

Now you KNOW what others have asked about and have been told to AVOID - 470 around Denver - it is CRAZY $$$$$ and is seldom used even by locals - Do like most and time your trip through and around Denver to avoid the traffic - and enjoy the state - as it is BEAUTIFUL and FUN.

Best of Luck in your Future travels,

Sometimes it is better to just grin and bear it and sit in traffic on the direct route.

They are not just banking tax $$ for their Colorado pot, they are smoking it.

Amen to that!

I lasted about half way along 470 with the TC and toad before exiting in a bankruptcy panic. Never went back there again.

We too use 225 and 270 now, but my thought is that it "reduces" rather than "skips" the 25 Denver area traffic. It probably depends some on the time of day, but this Summer going East it was bumper to bumper until we got all the way out to 70. I'm very thankful to the courteous drivers that gave us a space to change lanes or we may have gone South without wanting to. It was around 4:30-5:00 in the afternoon, a bad time in any city. We go through there nearly every year on our way from OR to WV, or coming back.

Just my 2c.

Steve
