CDOT to break ground on C-470 Express Lanes

LONE TREE, Colo. -- The Colorado Department of Transportation is set to break ground on new lanes on C-470 between Interstate 25 and Wadsworth Boulevard.

Construction will begin Wednesday to add the 12-mile Express Lanes, which will be tolled. There will be no HOV or carpool waivers to use the lanes.

Two westbound lanes will be added between I-25 and Colorado Boulevard, and one lane from Colorado to Wadsworth. One eastbound lane will be added between Wadsworth and I-25.

The $300 million project is expected to be completed by spring 2019.
