The I-70 Mountain Corridor Context Statement

The I-70 Mountain Corridor is a magnificent, scenic place. Human
elements are woven through breathtaking natural features. 
The integration of these diverse elements has occurred 
over the course of time.

This corridor is a recreational destination for the world, a route for
interstate and local commerce, and a unique place to live.

It is our commitment to seek balance and provide for
twenty-first-century uses.

We will continue to foster and nurture new ideas to address the
challenges we face.

We respect the importance of individual communities, the natural
environment, and the need for safe and efficient travel.

Well-thought-out choices create a sustainable legacy.

What is a Context Statement?

A context statement seeks to capture in words the special qualities and attributes that define a place as unique. A context statement should capture in words that which was true fifty years ago and that which must be considered during the development of improvements in order to sustain truth in those same words for fifty years to come.
