Underground Lunch and Learn: Central 70 Project Overview – Lowered Section Groundwater Analysis
March 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree, Lunch Provided
The Central 70 Project will widen Interstate 70 (I-70) from six to 10 lanes by adding two lanes in each direction between Interstate 25 and Tower Road (about 11 mi.); remove the existing viaduct between Brighton Blvd. and Colorado Blvd. and rebuild I-70 along this segment 40 ft. below grade on the existing alignment; and place a 4-acre cover on the highway between Columbine St. and Clayton St. next to Swansea Elementary School. This design will be constructed with a 75- to 100-year life expectancy. The $1.2 Billion project is slated for completion in 2022.
