Shortly before 6 pm, interactive calls will go out to thousands of residents.  After residents answer their phones, calls will be automatically connected to the meeting. Anyone who does not receive a call but wants to participate can dial in, toll-free, at 1-877-229-8493, PIN 112034#

About the project:

CDOT is on an accelerated schedule to begin construction on improving 18 miles of I-25 between Castle Rock and Monument.  The project would add a lane in each direction, widen shoulders, repave the surface and improve wildlife crossings.  CDOT is considering making the additional lane an Express Lane, which would be built alongside the two General Purpose Lanes in each direction.  Motorists would have the option of driving the General Purpose lanes for free or they could take the Express Lane for a more reliable trip in exchange for paying a variable toll.  CDOT spent a year evaluating more than 100 alternatives to improve 32 miles of I-25 between Colorado Springs and Denver.  From this process, it was determined an early action project was needed on the Gap to improve safety, mobility and travel reliability.   CDOT will begin construction end of this year once environmental work is completed and should $350 million in funding be secured.
