Project Teams & Working Groups

Project Status: Completegreencheckmark

A critical element of the I-70 Mountain Express Lane planning process was the ability to foster an ongoing dialogue with representatives of the local community by collecting input from key community members and stakeholders alike. Their valuable insight continues to serve as a meaningful resource during the construction phase of the project. Project Leadership and the Technical Teams were formed during the planning phase of the project and will continue to meet periodically through construction to ensure that their concerns are addressed throughout the remainder of the project. In addition, issue-specific task forces (e.g. Exit 241 Interchange reconfiguration) have and will continue to meet.

Organizations represented on the Project Leadership Team and Technical team are:

City of Idaho Springs Federal Highway Administration
Clear Creek County High Performance Transportation Enterprise
Clear Creek County Sheriff's Department I-70 Coalition
Clear Creek Watershed Foundation Idaho Springs Police Department
Colorado Department of Transportation Jefferson County
Colorado Motor Carriers Association Summit County
Colorado State Historic Preservation Office US Army Corps of Engineers
Colorado State Patrol US Forest Service
Colorado Trout Unlimited Upper Clear Creek Watershed Association
