CDOT: I-70 fix costs to top $8 billion

July 8, 2009

The Colorado Department of Transportation has estimated any fix to the I-70 corridor from Denver to Grand Junction could cost upwards of $8 billion. The Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce says congestion between the two cities costs the state more than $830 million in lost productivity each year.

Earlier estimates offered by Stop I-70 Expansion were based on the costs just in North Denver, and were less than $2 billion. This estimate more than quadruples what we’d stated as the financial cost of I-70 expansion.

The full cost of I-70 is not merely financial, however.  Its most devastating impacts will be on communities, homes, our lives.

Stop I-70 Expansion!
