CDOT to build HQ in Mile High Stadium parking lot; new parking structure to be built

DENVER – The Colorado Department of Transportation will build a new headquarters building in the parking lot of Mile High Stadium, Amy Ford with CDOT confirmed on Friday.

The Metropolitan Football Stadium District sold part of Lot M to CDOT for the new building. That means 367 parking spaces will be lost.

CDOT said a new parking structure will be built as part of the new building, providing around 500 new parking spots.

Construction is set to start near the end of the year and is expected to be completed by early 2018.
