US 85 from Denver to Greeley Intelligent Transportation System Installation

Project Facts

  • Cost: $3 million
  • Project Engineer: Jill Scott
  • Contractor(s): Zayo, Paonia, Fiber Works and Dillie and Kuhn
    CDOT has shared its right-of-way and existing infrastructure with Zayo, in exchange for its construction work on this project.

In 2016, crews on this project installed fiber optic cable along US 85, from Denver to Greeley along a stretch of US 285. This work will accommodate the future implementation of the intelligent transportation system (ITS), which will include the use of connected vehicles (aka, driverless cars).
