Preguntas Frecuentes

1. ¿Qué se está estudiando en el EIS de la I-70 Este?

El EIS de la I-70, el cual empezó en el 2003, estudia mejoras en la autopista I-70 en el tramo de la I-25 y Tower Road. Los objetivos del proyecto son de reducir el congestionamiento, mejorar la seguridad y facilitar la entrada y salida de la autopista.

2. ¿Cuáles son los pasos a seguir?

After conclusion of the Final EIS review period on March 2, 2016, a Record of Decision (ROD) will be issued by the FHWA in late summer of 2016 with construction anticipated to begin in 2017.

3. ¿Qué es un Anteproyecto del Informe de Impacto Ambiental Suplementario (Supplemental Draft EIS abreviación en inglés)?

Siempre que se produzcan cambios, nueva información o nuevos acontecimientos en un proyecto el cual resulta en impactos ambientales significativos no identificados en la versión más reciente del Anteproyecto o del EIS Final, es necesario un EIS suplementario.

4. What is a Final Environmental Impact Statement (Final EIS)?

Based on the comments on the Supplemental Draft EIS, CDOT and FHWA prepare a Final EIS to announce the identified Preferred Alternative. Response to public comments are not mandated for the Final EIS; however, the agencies will consider the comments in preparing the ROD.

5. What is a Record of Decision (ROD)?

Once the Final EIS review period ends, CDOT and FHWA will issue a Record of Decision, which is the final action prior to implementation. A Preferred Alternative is selected in the ROD, which the agencies are legally bound to implement.

¡El CDOT NO está tomando en consideración cambios de ruta de la I-70! Recientemente, ha habido muchas preguntas sobre si CDOT está evaluando o no una alternativa para realinear la I-70 alrededor de Denver usando la interestatal 270 y la 76. Esta alternativa fue eliminada de la lista de alternativas a considerar al inicio del proceso del proyecto, como se documentó en el Anteproyecto del EIS.

En el próximo documento ambiental se incluirán razones adicionales por la que no se consideró esta opción como una alternativa viable para la I-70 Este, y se espera que el documento estará disponible a finales del verano del 2013. Las alternativas que CDOT está evaluando para mejorar la I-70 se pueden encontrar en la página de Alternativas

8. What will and will not the I-70 East/Central 70 Project do?

Detailed information about the I-70 East/Central 70 project can be found on this project website www.i-70east.com/es and at central70.codot.gov.

The I-70 East project will

The I-70 East project will NOT

Project Basics

Will:  Provide the first safety and capacity improvements to I-70 since the highway's construction in 1964.

• 1 new Express Lane in each direction.

• Auxiliary lanes for safe exiting.

• Shoulders for accidents and breakdowns.

• Rebuilding of some existing side streets.

Will Not:  Add unnecessary or excessive lanes. The proposed 8- to 10-lane template is similar to other major interstates in the metro area and is designed to safely carry well over 200,000 vehicles per day.
Will:  Permanently address the 50-year old viaduct; the second largest bridge in Colorado and the last of the 33 worst bridges in the state yet to be addressed.
Will Not:  Prevent CDOT from addressing poor and structurally deficient bridges around the state. The Transportation Commission requires that no more than 50% of revenues from the Bridge Enterprise program be allocated to I-70 East.
Will:  Add new capacity and choice with Express Lanes that encourage carpooling, accommodate future transit growth and guarantee drivers a congestion-free trip even as Colorado grows by 50%.
Will Not:  Add new capacity as general purpose lanes where congestion can't be managed.
Will:  Create a vibrant and active 4-acre cover maintained by the City and County of Denver and modeled on other active spaces around the nation.
Will Not:  Further divide the Globeville, Elyria and Swansea neighborhoods.
Will:  Ensure all aspects of the highway, including landscaping and snow removal, are maintained via strict standards placed on the Developer.
Will Not:  Be subject to unknown funding sources for maintenance.
Will:  Enhance pedestrian and bicycle connectivity and safety throughout the corridor by incorporating 8-foot sidewalks, tree lawns and lighting along roads.
Will Not:  Reduce pedestrian and bicycle connectivity or safety.
Will:  Have its own independent drainage system designed for the 100-year storm. More info: Drainage Fact Sheet

Will Not:  Require additional property acquisitions for drainage or rely on any other drainage system in the area to function.

Traffic Congestion

Will:  Relieve congestion and create a functioning highway that makes it possible for drivers to return to I-70 for their trips instead of the local street network.
Will Not:  Shift traffic to the local street network. More info: Final EIS Alternative Analysis Technical Report
Will:  Accommodate freight traffic on one of Colorado's most active industrial and business corridors; serving 1,200 businesses and 22,000 employees.
Will Not:  Shift freight traffic from the interstate to local streets.

Impacts and Mitigations

Will:  Provide a series of unprecedented mitigations including a $2M contribution to affordable housing development, funding for fresh food access, improvements to Swansea Elementary School and home improvements for more than 300 homes.
Will Not:  Ignore the impacts to the community.
Will:  Meet all health-based air quality standards and result in emissions levels that are equivalent or reduced compared to No Action even with the nearly 50% increase in population and increased travel expected in 2035.
Will Not:  Cause violations of health-based air quality standards set by the EPA.
Will:  Improve air quality in the area, including at Swansea Elementary School, by reducing congestion and building a lowered and partially covered highway.
Will Not:  Negatively impact long-term air quality.
Will:  Provide the residents and owners of 56 homes acquired for the project with full benefits under the Uniform Act, including covering the cost difference caused by market conditions.
Will Not:  Require residents displaced by the project to make up the difference between the value of their home and a new property with like characteristics or place restrictions on where residents choose to move.
