Columbine Express Lanes Are under Consideration by Colorado DOT

Columbine Courier reports, “The Colorado Department of Transportation continues to consider options that would improve traffic along C-470 from Kipling Parkway to Interstate 70. CDOT and the WestConnect Coalition, a collaborative effort led by local and state agencies, are in the midst of conducting a ‘planning and environmental linkages,’ or PEL, study. . . .” Possible improvements undergoing review include “the addition of managed lanes, or express lanes like those now in operation on the U.S. 36 corridor between Denver and Boulder,” and peak-period shoulder lanes.
