Hwy 85 to E470:The E470 Tollway is open from route to us from Hwy 85 to DIA. Is it worth it? It’s longer by about two or three miles than the Bromley to 4th Avenue route, but driving speeds are higher. It will cost you toll to get on at Hwy 85, and to get off at 96th Ave. If you continue south to PeÃ±a (not recommended!), the total cost is even more, and the driving time and distance longer still. If you prefer to use E-470, take Hwy 85 south of the city of Brighton, You’ll go under E-470, then loop around on the a HUGE cloverleaf (I’m not kidding, it’s about 2 miles!) to enter the E470 Tollway and pay toll to enter the tollway. Take E470 south to 96th Avenue (Exit 31 – toll charge), turn right on 96th, and left on Tower at the light. If you exit past 96th Ave, you’ll drive further and wind up paying additional toll at the toll plaza just south of 96th Ave. Save a buck and a minute or two, and get off on 96th Ave. To be fair, there are toll discounts if you have an E Z Pass transponder but don’t worry if you have no change- you can drive right through, they will take a picture of your plate and mail you a bill. There is no added cost unless you do not pay by the due date, at which time you will get a ticket for a much higher cost.
