Letter of Support from the City and County of Denver, Office of Mayor Hancock, to CDOT (thumbnail of letter)

Letter of Support from the
City & County of Denver, Office of Mayor Hancock

Date: October 31, 2014

"The City and County of Denver ("Denver") supports the Partial Cover Lowered Alternative ("PCL") as the best and most viable option to deliver a project that will serve the complex needs of our residents, commuters and the region as a whole, as noted through the regional leaders' letter from June 2013 and the Denver City Council resolution from April 2014. We value the large investment that CDOT is making in this critical piece of highway infrastructure for our state. To get this right, it is imperative that this project support the Elyria, Swansea and Globeville neighborhoods as well as Denver as a whole. On behalf of the residents of Denver, my administration will continue to ensure that the I-70 East SDEIS supports the vitality and strength of the surrounding communities. ..."

"Concerning the reconstruction of Interstate 70 through Northeast Denver.

Letter of Support from Adams County, the City and County of Denver, and Commerce City (thumbnail of letter)

Letter of Support from
Adams County, the City & County of Denver, and Commerce City

Date: June 6, 2013

"It has come to our attention that a small number of people believe the decision by CDOT and the I-70 PACT stakeholder group to leave I-70 on its current alignment should be disregarded and that the option of realigning I-70 along the I-270 route should be unilaterally pursued. The City and County of Denver, Adams County, and the City of Commerce City continue to support CDOT's decision to keep I-70 on its current alignment and place it below grade for the following reasons: The City and County of Denver, Adams County and the City of Commerce City continue to honor the tremendous work of the I-70 PACT, which consisted of key stakeholders, including residents, businesses and community leaders. ..."

"The City of Aurora supports CDOT's preliminarily identified preferred alternative for improvements to the I-70 East Corridor as identified in the I-70 East Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (August 29, 2014). This alternative is titled the Partial Cover Lowered Alternative with Managed Lanes Option. Aurora recognizes the significant efforts that have been put forth working with an amalgam of stakeholders comprised of corridor residents, businesses and a variety of jurisdictions over the last decade, to reach a package of proposed improvements for the I-70 Corridor between Brighton Boulevard and Tower Road. I-70 is rapidly deteriorating and continues to experience increasing congestion throughout major time periods during the day and night throughout all segments. It is crucial that improvements focusing on safety and congestion are realized throughout the 1-70 East Corridor. ..."

Date: February 25, 2016

"The North Area Transportation Alliance (NATA) is a coalition of thirteen local governments, the Metro North Chamber of Commerce, Adams County Economic Development and Smart Commute Metro North Transportation Management Organization in the north east quadrant of the metro Denver area.

Letter of Support from the North Area Transportation Alliance (NATA), September 2012 (thumbnail of letter)

Letter of Support from the
North Area Transportation Alliance (NATA)

Date: September 18, 2012

"The North Area Transportation Alliance (NATA) is an association of eleven local governments, the Metro North Chamber of Commerce, Adams County Economic Development Corporation, and businesses in the north east quadrant of the metro Denver area. NATA's partnership of public and private entities work to identify, develop, advocate and lobby for transportation solutions that will enhance mobility, drive economic development and reduce traffic congestion in the north metro area. ... It is our understanding that an alternative realignment option has been proposed that would re-route I-70 using I-76 and I-270. Our concern with this realignment option is that it primarily impacts the north metro area and simply shifts the problem to the north, compounding significant congestion issues that have yet to be addressed. NATA does not support this option and requests it be removed from consideration. ..."
