DENVER -- The Colorado Department of Transportation is gearing up for one of the biggest road expansion projects ever launched in metro Denver.
The plans call for reconstructing I-70 from I-25 to Tower Road. CDOT wants to know what your opinion about the project and how to improve traffic flow on the highway before it finalizes its plans.
The CDOT proposal calls for adding additional lanes along the entire 12-mile stretch of road.
It would also tear down the aging viaduct between Brighton and Colorado boulevards.
Part of the Interstate would go below grade and part of it would be covered with a park for some of the neighborhoods around the Brighton Blvd. area.
Construction isn't going to start for at least two years. But CDOT knows people have questions and criticisms about the massive project and it is holding a series of public meetings to hear them.
