DENVER – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the High Performance Transportation Enterprise (HPTE) will host a series of telephone town halls on Tuesday, July 9, and Wednesday, July 10, to share information about the Express Lanes Master Plan with the public.

CDOT officials say that as the state continues to grow and develop, there’s a need to develop a statewide strategic Express Lanes Master Plan (ELMP) to proactively prepare for Colorado’s future needs.

Here’s how you can participate in the telephone town halls, depending on where you live:

Tuesday, July 9:

From 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. for those in the Denver metro area east of I-25 and south of I-70.

From 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. for those in the Denver metro area west of I-25 and south I-70.

Wednesday, July 10:

From 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., for those in the Denver metro area north I-70.

From 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. for those in mountain areas west of Denver to Frisco.

How will it work?

CDOT will call residents in the Denver metro area and mountain communities along the I-70 corridor. If you don’t receive a call or would like to participate, call 855-710-6230.

The Express Lanes Master Plan will serve as a comprehensive long-term strategic road map for the prioritization, planning, and development of future Express Lanes, officials said.
