Central 70 Project Officially Breaks Ground in Denver Metro Area

09-Aug-2018 to 06-Sep-2018

Gov. Hickenlooper was joined by Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock, Deputy Federal Highway Administrator Brandye Hendrickson, CDOT Executive Director Mike Lewis, local cities and counties, and the construction team to break ground on the Central 70 Project. This is the largest construction project in the state and is CDOT's second Public Private Partnership (P3).

"Today's groundbreaking reflects our commitment to have our infrastructure meet the needs demanded by the country's number one economy," said Gov. John Hickenlooper. "This corridor of Interstate 70 has served the state well, but it's time to no longer depend on a 54-year old stretch of interstate to handle the demands of a growing and mobile state."

With construction anticipated to stretch through 2022, the Central 70 project and Kiewit Meridiam Partners have pledged to minimize impacts to the adjacent communities and the traveling public. The Project will be built in phases and all lanes on the interstate must be kept open during daytime hours.
