Renton — Commuters are testing the HOT lane on Highway 167 between Auburn and Renton, as the state Transportation Department tries congestion pricing to control traffic.

Today is the first workday for the High Occupancy Toll lane that went into effect Saturday.

The department's project manager, Patty Rubstello, says the price for solo drivers to enter the car pool lane at 5 a.m. was 50 cents. But she says it could climb to $5 during the peak of the commute.
