I-70 Twin Tunnels

Today the Colorado Transportation Commission approved $60 million to widen the eastbound tunnel of the I-70 “twin tunnels” in Clear Creek County. The project will add a third lane to the eastbound tunnel to ease congestion. For more information on what this upcoming construction means for you, visit the Colorado Dept. of Transportation (CDOT)’s project website. Here you will find documents and analysis, a timeline, environmental impact statements and records of decision, news releases, and updates on the project. CDOT has just tweeted that “we have at least [a] year of environmental study before construction. Will try to make it as painless as possible!” Keep checking the CDOT website for construction delays on highways throughout Colorado.
