The report, which examined the turn-of-the-century expansion of I-25 known as T-REX, says that these managed lanes would expand the capacity of the corridor for everyone while providing a "congestion-free" option for drivers and better transit for people who don't drive — without a widening that would be financially and physically impossible.

Carpoolers and people who work from home would fill the remaining gap.
