Underground Lunch and Learn: Central 70 Project Overview – Lowered Section Groundwater Analysis

March 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free, 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.

Groundwater: Discovery and Testing. How are we avoiding it? What do we do with it if we come across it? How do we test it? Attend this presentation to learn the answers to these questions and what action is taken when groundwater is discovered.

Presenters:  Craig Briggs, Project Executive and SENIOR Vice President, Central 70 and Jason Proskovec, Deputy Project Director, Central 70
