Community Commitments

As part of the federally-approved Record of Decision, CDOT made a series of community commitments that must be delivered as part of the project. Many of these nearly 150 community commitments are without precedent in Colorado; never having been provided as part of a major infrastructure project. Some of these commitments must be in place before construction starts while others include measures that are part of the construction process (controlling dust and placing construction staging areas away from residential areas).
