CDOT conducted an alternatives development and evaluation process in 2020, considering alternatives carried forward from earlier study and newly developed alternatives. This process included extensive coordination with Commerce City and Adams County staff and elected officials. Preliminary recommendations have been made.

Coordination is currently occurring with potentially impacted property owners to gather feedback related to refinements to minimize impacts before preliminary design begins. This project will also include NEPA documentation and final design of the proposed project. The improvements are planned to be constructed starting in early to mid-2024, depending on funding availability. The majority of funding has been identified. Public and stakeholder coordination will occur throughout the process. Additional information can be found below and through the Resources links on the left side of this page.
