CDOT to add I-70 express lane to the mountains
IDAHO SPRINGS, Colo. -- The Colorado Department of Transportation and Governor Jared Polis kicked off construction of an Interstate 70 westbound express lane project with the goal of improving travel time and safety in the mountain corridor. The new express lane will act much like the existing express lane on I-70 eastbound. The new lane will be 12 miles long -- stretching from the Veterans Memorial tunnels, near the Central City exit, to the Empire Junction exit.
