What's New

The ICS Team has recently completed the Level 2 Conceptual Evaluation and will be presenting that information at five open houses along the Front Range and in the I-70 Mountain Corridor.  Level 2 Evaluation involved further development of the alternative scenarios, ridership, travel time/speeds and revenue estimation, and a general assessment of community and environmental effects.  The Level 2 Evaluation was at a greater level of detail than the Level 1 Evaluation. The ICS Team developed a methodology for determining ridership and revenue forecasts as part of the evaluation process. This framework was used to develop the ridership numbers to better compare alternative scenarios. The ICS Team has preliminary ridership and revenue estimation numbers, and is preparing for the second series of public open houses. The schedule for the upcoming public open houses is as follows:
