Colorado Regional Meeting
July 12, 2012
11:30am to 5:00pm
Registration Fee: $12.00 ($15.00 after July 3rd)
As CDOT completes its commitment to US 40/287 as a high priority project (7th Pot) and has already completed the reconstruction of Interstate 70 from Aurora to Limon, what does the future look like for the Ports-to-Plains and Heartland Expressway corridors through Colorado? Where does rural transportation fit into future plans? We hear a great deal about the importance of the transportation system and the need to expand alternatives like transit and addressing congestion, but just where does the rural transportation system that moves our natural resources and Colorado products to markets, that bring products to the urban high population areas, and that bring tourists to the Colorado fit into the future?
Ports-to-Plains and Heartland Expressway members, economic development interests, businesses, elected officials are all stakeholders in the future of rural transportation in Colorado. Mark this date on your calendars and plan to attend.
