Federal Judge Allows CDOT’s $317 Million C-470 Expansion to Move Forward as Lawsuit Continues

Denver Business Journal reports, “A federal judge is allowing the $317 million expansion of C-470 along Denver’s southern flank to move forward while a lawsuit over the noise the wider highway will cause also moves forward.” CDOT has started construction of tolled express lanes in both directions on a segment of the highway. Judge Raymond Moore ruled on December 7 that a group of residents failed to establish grounds for an immediate injunction, but he reserved judgment on the underlying claim that CDOT should add more noise barriers to the project plan.
