As the largest transportation infrastructure project in Colorado’s history, the Central 70 Project has major significance, not only for the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) but for the region as a whole. I-70 is the main artery that connects people and communities across Colorado. In the Denver-metro area, it is home to more than 1,200 businesses and moves 200,000 vehicles per day. Once completed, the Central 70 Project will improve safety, mobility and community connections along one of Colorado’s most congested interstate corridors.
After 15 years of meticulous planning to prepare for the Project, CIG knew a standard groundbreaking simply wouldn’t do to mark this milestone moment.
