CDOT Breaks Ground on C-­470 Express Lanes Project

19-Aug-2016 to 19-Aug-2016

CDOT, along with officials from various levels of government, recently celebrated the groundbreaking of the C­-470 Express Lanes project aimed at "increasing mobility and user choice" for Denver metro motorists. The $276 million project will add express lanes on a 12.5­mile section of Colorado 470 between Interstate 25 and Wadsworth Boulevard. It also will include full reconstruction of existing pavement, auxiliary lanes at certain locations, ramp improvements, realignment of substandard curves, bridge widening, bridge placement over the South Platte River and the installation of intelligent transportation system components and tolling equipment. 

Flatiron/AECOM is leading the design­ build project and expects to complete construction by the spring of 2019. Small business should contact the prime team to learn about potential subcontracting opportunities through the project. Click here to learn more.
