Public Invited to I-25 Open House
CASTLE ROCK – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is hosting two open houses next week to gather additional public comment on the future of the Interstate 25 corridor between Lone Tree and Monument.
A Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study is underway to identify immediate and longer-term solutions to this critical stretch of highway, connecting the state’s two largest cities. Public input is vital because the study is analyzing and looking to address issues related to safety, mobility and travel reliability.
Both open houses are scheduled from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., with a presentation at 5:30 p.m., at the following locations:
Tuesday, April 25
Douglas County Fairgrounds – Main Event Center
500 Fairgrounds Road
Thursday, April 27
Pikes Peak Library 21c – Venue Room
1175 Chapel Hills Drive
Representatives from CDOT and the project consultants will be on hand for questions and comments. Project display boards also will be set-up for viewing.
In conjunction with the PEL, CDOT also is looking to advance an early action construction project in the four-lane “Gap” segment between Castle Rock and Monument.
The PEL was initiated in advance of having any funding secured for construction. This approach allows CDOT to accelerate the environmental analyses required when construction funds are identified. More information is available at: www.codot.gov/projects/I25COSDEN
As part of its PEL public outreach efforts, CDOT held two initial open houses in January 2017.
