New construction on Colorado's Highway 36, which connects Denver and Boulder, Colorado, is actively trying to make people drive less. It's being done with a combination of carrots and sticks. On the plus side is a dedicated fast lane for high-occupancy vehicles and bus rapid transit service. There highway is also incorporating a bike path. The stick comes in the form of a high-tech toll system exclusively for single-occupant cars. According to Victor Mendez, the head of the Federal Highway Administration, "This innovative approach is what we’re looking for in the future. It’s an exciting project."
