Collin County leaders oppose Hwy. 75 toll lanes

Posted: Updated:
PLANO, Texas - The state may scrap plans to turn free HOV lanes into toll lanes on Central Expressway in Collin County.

The Texas Transportation Commission heard nearly unanimous opposition to the idea.

It would have allowed solo drivers to use the HOV lanes between Allen and the High Five Interchange by paying a toll.

Collin County leaders say they do not want more toll lanes and favor more freeways.

The county's judge wants federal approval to get rid of the HOV lanes all together and open them up to all drivers.

The problem, of course, is how to pay for such a project without funding from tolls.
