DENVER – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the High Performance Transportation Enterprise (HPTE) today launched a new online tool, www.cdotexpresslanes.info or www.coloradodot.info/programs/expresslanes to educate and engage the public about changes in transportation financing, partnerships and project delivery, and important public engagement opportunities specific to these elements. The tool also provides an update on the proposed I-70 East project, from I-25 to Tower Road.

The online “public meeting” addresses Colorado’s major mobility issues, presents informational videos, and asks for the public’s feedback about how transportation alternatives can be built in today’s new era of transportation. It includes an update on the next project to be considered for a Public Private Partnership (P3) – I-70 through east Denver – and upcoming public engagement opportunities that will focus on Colorado’s options for paying for the project. Visitors have the opportunity to learn about, discuss and provide their own feedback on the following topics:

  • The new era of transportation, and CDOT’s innovative options for funding and project delivery

  • CDOT’s strategy for Express Lanes as a way to provide multiple options for travelers in Colorado’s busiest transportation corridors

  • The role of HPTE in financing and catalyzing transportation projects

  • The future of Public Private Partnerships (P3s) and how they work

  • How CDOT and HPTE plan to expand public engagement

  • I-70 East and the potential to use a P3 model

​The HPTE operates as a government-owned, independent business within CDOT. It searches out innovative ways for financing projects to help Colorado fulfill its commitment to increase travel choices through options that include Express Lanes, transit, biking, walking and carpooling.
