Public Invited to Review I-70/Kipling Interchange Environmental Assessment of Reconstruction Plans

Oct. 15, 2018 -

JEFFERSON COUNTY—CDOT plans to reconstruct the I-70/Kipling Street interchange and make related improvements to the interchange area. A diverging diamond interchange configuration is the proposed action.

An environmental assessment (EA) is being conducted to evaluate the benefits and impacts of these improvements, and document any necessary impact mitigation.

The EA will be available for a 30-day public review later this year, and a public meeting will be held during the public review period. Comments received will be considered by CDOT and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) prior to issuing their final decision to confirm if improvements can move forward. Notice of the document availability and public meeting date will only be sent to those on the electronic mailing list. To join, email [email protected].

Project Implementation

Construction is not yet fully funded, but completing this study and preliminary (30 percent) design will allow the project to quickly move forward when funding is obtained.

Two initiatives on the 2018 ballot (Propositions 109 and 110) would impact transportation funding in Colorado.
