Update on I-25 Central Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study – CDOT is reviewing several options for the six-mile stretch of highway between Santa Fe Drive and 20th Street that runs right through the center of the city. According to CDOT, this area carries over a quarter of a million cars each day and has the highest average daily traffic in all of Colorado.  Some of the proposed options include:
• Multi-lane deck atop the current freeway
• Widening the interstate
• Toll lanes
• Lane realignment
• Additional light rail tracks
• Raised on and off ramps
• More feeder roads
• Charging drivers to use the highway during rush hours
While some may be too costly (multi-lane deck) and cause too much of a public outcry (charging drivers) CDOT feels more than one of these options may be implemented. JPUN has reached out to CDOT to see where they are in the process. CDOT states that they are currently running modeling scenarios on the proposed options.
JPUN will continue to work with CDOT to provide information to residents and present feedback. In the meantime, you can provide your input through the survey here – bit.ly/I-25CentralSurvey.
