CDOT to Host I-70 East Project Industry Forum

23-Feb-2015 to 23-Feb-2015

CDOT is pleased to announce an Industry Forum for the I-70 East Corridor Project on March 11-12, 2015. The I-70 East project proposes to bring major improvements to one of the region's most critical highway segments. The Industry Forum is an opportunity to showcase the proposed I-70 East Project, explore creative approaches to project development, and seek early input from attendees on procurement design and cost saving ideas. Because the I-70 East Project is one of the largest transportation projects in the country, the Forum is expected to attract a wide array of participants including global contractors and developers, engineering and design firms, investors and lenders and local, DBE, and specialty contractors.

The Forum will start at 2:00 pm on March 11th with an opening session. One-on-one meetings with interested teams will begin at 4:00 pm on the 11th and will continue through the morning and early afternoon of March 12th. More information, including a detailed agenda, will be available soon. The Industry Forum is a critical step in the process to determine a funding and procurement plan for the proposed I-70 East project. A funding plan is a required element of the Record of Decision, which is the document that completes the I-70 East Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The Industry Forum does not preclude or circumvent the outcome of the ongoing EIS for I-70 East.
