July 2017 Public Outreach Meeting

At a July 26, 2017, scoping meeting for this project, the team introduced the project NEPA process and collected scoping information from the public—all of which has been documented in the meeting minutes, boards, presentation and other materials.

This input has also been included in a spreadsheet with a response to every comment. See responses.

Westbound Peak-Period Shoulder Lane Context Statement

The I-70 Mountain corridor is a magnificent, scenic place in close proximity to the Denver Metro area. Human elements are woven through breathtaking natural features. The integration of these diverse elements has occurred over the course of time. The corridor is a recreational destination for the world, a route for interstate and local commerce and a unique place to live.

I-70 is also federally designated as a high-priority corridor, a significant part of the defense network, a major east/west continental corridor and a major economic corridor for Colorado. For many local communities along the corridor, I-70 is the lifeline, primary access and only connection to other communities.

Current I-70 roadway geometry is constrained with narrow shoulders and tight curves that impact safety, mobility, accessibility, and capacity for travelers and residents. In a manner that respects the unique environmental, historic, community and recreational resources in Clear Creek County, westbound improvements are needed to lessen delays caused by peak period volumes.
