CDOT Releases Updated Schedule for Central 70 Project

12-Sep-2016 to 12-Sep-2016

As the Central 70 project enters the final stages, several important milestones remain. The next critical step is for the Federal Highway Administration to issue a Record of Decision (ROD), which concludes the 13 year environmental study process. The ROD is now scheduled to be signed in winter 2017. This new schedule allows CDOT additional time to address comments received on the Final Environmental Impact Statement. The timing for selecting a contractor and beginning construction will be moved out as well to follow the revised ROD timing. Construction is expected to begin in 2018.
