Collaborative Effort Process

The Colorado Department of Transportation identified a representative group of stakeholders from the Denver metropolitan area and the I-70 Corridor to participate in a facilitated process to reach agreement on a recommended preferred alternative to address the transportation problems. Known as the Collaborative Effort, the decision-making process to identify a preferred alternative resolving the problems on I‑70 was based on analysis and consensus. As members of this team, CDOT and FHWA participated in the consensus process, ensuring that the Consensus Recommendation met purpose and need, state and federal laws, regulations, and policies.
