If you suffer through traffic every day along El Paso's busiest roadways, there is now an option for those times you can't afford to be stuck in traffic: the César Chávez Express Toll Lanes, the first project of its kind in El Paso. While you can still use the non-tolled, general purpose lanes along the César Chávez Highway, you now have the choice to use the Express Toll Lanes for a more predictable and reliable commute.
The César Chávez Express Toll Lanes stretch from just west of Zaragoza to just east of US 54. There is one Express Lane in each direction. If you choose to use the César Chávez Express Toll Lanes, you may only enter and exit at designated locations along the project. The designated locations are shown with overhead signs and pavement markings. The pavement markings at a designated entry point will have dashed lines on the entry side of the lane and designated exit points will have dashed lines on the exit side of the lane. West bound entry points are located at west of Zaragoza and west of Yarbrough. East bound entry points are located east of US54, east of Fonseca, and east of Yarbrough. All entry points are shown as a green arrow on the project map shown above. West bound exit points are located at east of Yarbrough, east of Fonseca, and east of US54. East bound exit points are located west of Yarbrough and west of Zaragoza. All exit points are shown as a red arrow on the project map above. The Express Toll Lanes allow a more efficient and safer commute, due to less stop-and-go traffic. Customers will have two ways to pay for their tolls. The easiest and least expensive way is to sign up for a prepaid TollTag account. Customers that choose not to use a TollTag will receive a Toll Bill in the mail via the Pay-By-Mail process.

You always have a choice; you can use the non-tolled general purpose lanes or use the express toll lanes for a predictable trip.
