CDOT to hold industry meeting for I-70 P3 project

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will hold an industry meeting for the Interstate 70 East public private partnership (PPP) project.

The meeting is scheduled to be held on December 9 and 10 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.

The industry forum is a critical step in the process to determine a funding and procurement plan for the proposed I-70 East project. The forum will provide an opportunity for industry teams to meet with CDOT officials.

The I-70 East project corridor extends through the eastern portion of the City and County of Denver. The current project limits extend (in abbreviated form) from the intersection of I-70 and I-25 east to Tower Road, a distance of approximately 11 miles. This portion of I-70 also intersects several railroad lines, I-270 and I-225.

The purpose of the project is to implement a transportation solution that improves safety, access and mobility. The need for the project results from the following issues:

  • Increased transportation demand
  • Limited transportation capacity
  • Safety concerns; and
  • Transportation infrastructure deficiencies

Few days back, Freshfields and Kaplan Kirsch Rockwell were selected to provide legal advice to the Colorado High Performance Transportation Enterprise (HPTE), a division of CDOT, and its interdisciplinary team of technical, engineering and financial professionals on the application of the P3 model for the Interstate 70 East PPP project. The contract will have a duration of 5 years.

Industry officials interested in the event should reply to IndustryForum@i-70east.com and include the names of each participant and company contact information.
