News sources are reporting that talks and meetings have begun regarding the future of I-70’s western corridor, regarding whether rail lines or highway widening (or both) are the answer to the heavy congestion along the interstate, particularly in Summit and Clear Creek counties. The CDOT-sponsored website, http://www.i70mtncorridor.com/, has a wealth of information on the planning. Also, in our library collection, we have the Urban Maglev Technology Development Program Final Report, which was recently published by CDOT; and various planning documents for I-70’s earlier planning stages, dating back to 1971. We also have the Colorado Rail Study and other regional transportation documents. Search our library catalog for more I-70 and CDOT publications and reports.
