I'm sure the answer is obvious, but I'm not sure how other cities handle it.
In other places the toll lanes are separated from free ones and there are entrance and exits points with cameras plus sensors (where transponder comes in handy).

We should all makes sure politicians will know in the future we'll not vote for anybody that supported toll lanes.

Sweet. Charlotte driving just isn't the same not seeing orange cones on 77, 485, or 85. The last 30 years has been that way why change it now.

That's what happens in fast growing cities.

Drives me crazy how they shifted the lanes. Now, where the former middle dashed white line was, is a rough pitted dashed piece of pavement exactly where your right tire should go if you're in the left lane. Its full of potholes and its rough. Dangerous, wreck your tires, causes people to drive way too close to one side of the lane or the other, and it makes noise that can be heard for miles when people drive over it.

Vote is tomorrow. Hope they get rid of the project!

The City has spoken and affirmed their position 9-2 on the toll lanes. Too much at stake to cancel the contract.

Below are the HOT lanes and their opening dates.

The vote was on Charlotte managed lanes. Now they're deciding on the I 77 toll lanes.
