2009 Disparity Study and Appendices

D. Wilson Consulting Group conducted a study to determine whether a disparity exists for minority and women owned disadvantaged business enterprises (M/W/DBEs) working on Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) federally funded construction and design projects. A disparity exists when there are more available M/W/DBEs ready, willing and able to conduct work on CDOT projects than are utilized. The study included six years of procurement activity from January 2002 through December 2007.

SH 7, Cherryvale to 75th Street EA & FONSI

Environmental Assessment (EA) May 2008 - This Environmental Assessment (EA) evaluates the environmental, social, and economic impact of the proposed action for State Highway (SH) 7 between Cherryvale Road and 75th Street (approximately 2.2 miles). For this study, the lead federal agency is the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is the applicant. This EA evaluates the impacts of the Preferred Alternative. This is compared against the No-Action Alternative. Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) October 2008 - SH 7 is a principal east-west arterial roadway serving as a commuter and intra-regional facility (see Figure 1-1 and Figure 1-2). To comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), an Environmental Assessment (EA) was conducted to evaluate the reasonable alternatives that address the purpose and need for the project and assesses the impacts of implementing the proposed improvements. Two alternatives, the No-Action Alternative and the Preferred Alternative (build alternative) were evaluated in the EA. The build alternative was identified as the Preferred Alternative.
