C-470 Corridor Coalition to host telephone town hall meeting Focusing on Jefferson County residents

September 8, 2014 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - Telephone town halls allow participants to learn about the project from the comfort of home.

JEFFERSON COUNTY – Phones in Jefferson County along C-470 will be ringing Tuesday as the C-470 Corridor Coalition hosts a telephone town hall meeting to discuss proposed improvements of the freeway and adding tolled Express Lanes.

Tuesday’s telephone town hall will focus on Jefferson County residents, but you do not need to live in that particular area to participate.  Residents that don’t receive a call can still participate by calling 877-229-8493 and entering PIN 110302.

The schedule for Tuesday’s hour-long telephone town hall meetings and the panelists are:

Tuesday, Sept. 9 at 7 p.m.
Focus area: Jefferson County
Panelists: Jefferson County Commissioner Donald Rosier, CDOT Commissioner Ed Peterson, Lakewood Mayor Bob Murphy, HPTE Executive Director Mike Cheroutes and CDOT Project Director Jerome Estes.

The C-470 Coalition was formed in 2011 to provide a forum for local governments, business organizations and citizens to consider funding options and ultimately reach consensus on a plan to pay for C-470 improvements.

In February 2013, the C-470 Coalition obtained consensus on Express Lanes as the preferred C-470 funding alternative. The Coalition is currently preparing a Revised Environmental Assessment (EA).  The Express Lanes alternative being analyzed has different access designs and locations, no longer includes a barrier separation and includes auxiliary lanes in select locations.
