CDOT Public Meeting: I-25 PEL Study

Thursday, January 26, 2017

Project Background
Between Monument and C-470, I-25 experiences congestion on numerous days throughout the week. Weekday and weekend travel delays and unreliability frustrate travelers now and will only get worse as Colorado's population grows from 5 million to more than 8 million in the next 20 years. Congestion, high (75 mph) speeds, and climbing grades contribute to severe crashes and can lead to long periods of highway closures.

CDOT initiated this Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study to identify immediate and longer-term solutions to this vital stretch of highway, connecting Colorado Springs and the Denver South area.

This stretch of I-25 between Monument and C-470 is important to corridor communities and travelers.

I-25 is the only north-south interstate route through Colorado, connecting the state's largest population and employment centers.

This segment of highway provides access to recreation and cultural amenities. It supports Homeland Security and the military, interstate commerce, and tourism. This PEL study is the first step to analyze and address safety, travel reliability and mobility issues. Action is coming and we need your help.

PEL Study Vision
Conduct a collaborative PEL process that results in a stakeholder-supported roadmap for implementing projects to improve safety, travel reliability, and mobility on this vital stretch of I-25 between Colorado Springs and the south Denver area

Why is CDOT Conducting this PEL?
CDOT is focused on developing a clear and supported plan of action for this critical stretch of I-25 and, more importantly, forwarding projects that provide immediate and long-term benefits. Although CDOT is fully committed to implementing improvements on I-25, the nature, timing and funding of those projects is unknown.

This PEL will lay the ground work for future improvements by:
  • Helping to identify, define and prioritize projects based on the corridor's greatest needs.
  • Identifying significant environmental constraints that may influence design options and/or delay project development with lengthy environmental reviews.
  • Clarifying project costs, and identifying necessary financing and funding options to implement improvements.
  • Providing a framework for CDOT to engage with local corridor communities, regional travelers, and other interested stakeholders to understand their concerns and ideas for improvements.
