If you have been in Aspen this Summer, you probably noticed the traffic backup coming into town all morning long. Well, I think to solve the issue we should persuade Snowmass Village to build another 5,000 units, they don't care. Sell them to people who buy there, but really want to be in Aspen. Next, we build a toll road and new bridge across Marolt and Castle Creek, two lanes one way east. Charge $20. Aspen residents can buy a year pass, employers can buy a car pool pass for employees, with a dedicated lane and portal for pass holders and RFTA. The S curves and old Castle Creek bridge would be one way west, no toll. The 5,000 extra units would assure the economic vitality of the tollway. Just dream of the parking revenue too!
