The Central 70 Corridor provides regional access from downtown Denver and the metropolitan area to Denver International Airport, serves as an inner beltway between I-225 and I-270, and provides access to adjacent employment areas, neighborhoods, and new development centers. Built 60 years ago, today it is one of the most heavily traveled and congested highway corridors in the Denver region and the state. The Central 70 Project will reduce congestion, improve safety, and make it easier to get on and off the highway in the corridor.
To finance this ambitious project, CDOT has selected a public-private partnership (PPP) delivery method. Utilizing a PPP offers advantages such as improved construction and design, accelerated delivery, and increased scope and schedule capabilities. CDOT will maintain ownership and oversight of the highway, guaranteeing that the road is kept repaired and well-maintained by tying annual payments to the private contractor to performance criteria set by CDOT.
