Public Invited to I-25 Open House

January 20, 2017 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1, Southeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 2 - CDOT soliciting ideas to Improve Corridor between Colorado Springs and Denver area

COLORADO SPRINGS – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is hosting two open houses next week to gather public comment on the future of the Interstate 25 corridor between Monument and Lone Tree.

A Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study currently 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 a vital part of the PEL since the study is analyzing and addressing safety, travel reliability and mobility issues. 

In addition to the PEL, CDOT also is focusing on advancing an early action construction project in the four-lane “Gap” segment between Castle Rock and Monument.

Both open houses will be take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., with a presentation at 5:30 p.m., as follows:


Tuesday, January 24

Pikes Peak Library 21c – Venue Room

1175 Chapel Hills Drive


Thursday, January 26

Douglas County Fairgrounds – Kirk Hall

500 Fairgrounds Road

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. 

CDOT has initiated the PEL 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:
