I have to say, since CDOT has created a third lane on southbound I-225 at Yosemite this month, my morning work commute is sooooo much better.
Sure, my co-workers are complaining that they can no longer get on southbound I-25 from DTC Blvd., but what’s truly important is that my quality of life is infinitely better. I mean, last week, I fairly flew down 225 toward the Denver Tech Center! That’s unheard of, I tell you. And, if you already have to live in Aurora, you take life’s small pleasures where you can find them, am I right?
We originally reported the Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) life-saving plans to overhaul the I-225/I-25 juncture back in September when, after being fed up with spending morning after morning in a massive, life-sized funnel, we reached out to CDOT and got the scoop on their planned solution.
So here’s what we want to know from you: What metro area traffic project should CDOT tackle next?
- Is C-470 driving you insane?
- What about the journey down southbound I-25, from 104th to 84th?
- Or the nightmare that is I-270 through Commerce City? (There’s definitely room to add more lanes there!)
- Did the $1.67 billion T-REX project on I-25 (completed in 2006) pay off?
What other Denver thoroughfares need a massive overhaul, and what are your suggestions for how to fix them? How is the restructure of 225 saving your life? Weigh in below, and let’s get the conversation started!
