USDOT approves US$54 million loan for Colorado US 36 HOT/HOV lanes project

It includes construction of one new managed, high-occupancy-vehicle (HOV) lane in each direction and the reconstruction of the general purpose lanes for a total of six lanes. Carpoolers and buses will use the HOV lanes for free, while single occupancy vehicles will be able to pay a toll to use the lanes, which will effectively convert them into high-occupancy-toll (HOT) lanes.
