I-70 Mountain Corridor Traffic and Revenue Study

In 2013, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) initiated a study to explore possible effective, long-term solutions (50-year) to congestion in the Interstate 70 (I-70) Mountain Corridor between C-470 and Silverthorne that are economically feasible, publicly acceptable, and use minimal public funding.

During the planning study, a multi-disciplinary consulting team will evaluate potential alternatives including those in the Record of Decision (ROD) for the I-70 Mountain Corridor Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) – then evaluate them, based on performance measures (evaluation criteria) developed in cooperation with stakeholders.

The I-70 Mountain Corridor Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS) Process is being utilized as a framework for the study. A Project Leadership Team (PLT) is leading and overseeing the project.  Membership includes representatives from the corridor communities, representative stakeholders in the business and environmental communities, local, state and federal agencies, the Federal Highway Administration, and CDOT.  A Technical Team (TT) comprised of specialists and community representatives will assist the consulting team in its efforts. Special Issue Task Forces (ITF) have been convened to develop and analyze specific issues.

CDOT began the study in 2013 and anticipates completion of the first two levels of screening by 2015. Public input is welcomed throughout the study. For further information about the project, contact Benjamin Acimovic, CDOT project manager at [email protected], phone 720-497-6936
