CDOT tours state to find improvement needs

After two days and eight stops, C-DOT wrapped up a statewide infrastructure tour across Colorado today with one last stop, to talk about what needs to be done, and to try and get support for more money.

DENVER - The Colorado Department of Transportation is touring the state this week to see what areas need the most improvement.

One of the projects CDOT is looking at addresses the stretch of Interstate 25 between Denver and Colorado Springs.

Another project looks to reduce congestion problems along Interstate 70 near Idaho Springs.

The infrastructure upgrades are aimed at keeping drivers and law enforcement safe.

“CDOT has a vision for major corridors and projects and is working to deliver these improvements, often incrementally, as funding is secured,” CDOT Executive Director Shailen Bhatt said in a press release. “Our goal is to save lives and make people’s lives better. Having a healthy infrastructure system in our state allows us to compete economically and continue to enjoy a high quality of life.”

Details on specific improvement projects along the I-25 and I-70 corridors are expected to be discussed during a press conference on Wednesday.
