Cash payments ending on east Denver toll road
AURORA, Colorado – Friday is the last day to use cash or change on E-470, the toll road that arcs around Denver’s east side.
Starting Saturday, the only payment options on the 47-mile road will be the EXpressToll system and license plate tolls.
EXpressToll uses a transponder inside the vehicle to bill the vehicle owner’s account. The license plate toll uses a camera to capture a vehicle’s tag, and it sends the vehicle owner a bill.
Highway officials say the cash lanes and automatic coin machines will no longer work.
EXpressToll customers will save 10 percent off the tolls, which vary by location along the highway.
