HOUSTON -- Driving on the Gulf Freeway got a little easier on Monday for those willing to pay.

Solo drivers who have an E-Z Tag can now pay a toll to use the HOV lanes between Dixie Farm Road and Dowling.

Tolls range from $1 to $4.50 depending on the time of day.

Officials say drivers should pay attention to the signs because the HOV lanes are closed to solo driver during peak rush hour times.
