Local Hire Program and New Funding for Job Training
CDOT will provide training and set hiring goals to enable hundreds of local residents to work on the reconstruction of the I-70 corridor from Brighton Boulevard to Chambers Road, an unprecedented workforce development program supported, in part, by a recently announced $400,000 grant from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

CDOT Project Team to be in Community
As part of the I-70 East/Central 70 project, members of the project team will be in the community performing a variety of field survey functions. They will be easily recognizable by the I-70 East project identification tags they will be wearing. They will be using various types of surveying and monitoring equipment to identify the location of utilities and other notable land features.
If you have any questions or in the event you believe that any I-70 East project personnel inadvertently entered property other than the public right-of-way, please notify Lee Lovell at Atkins at 720.475.7090. Please note that any concurrent activities by the personnel of the public utility companies are beyond the control of I-70 East project team.
Make sure you have the right information about your property and CDOT
CDOT has been notified by concerned residents that individuals have been going door-to-door in the neighborhood with materials on the I-70 East/Central 70 project. If you have any questions on whether or not the person approaching you is from CDOT, please ask them for their project identification tags. Please note that the badges now include both the I-70 East and Central 70 logos.
If you have questions about your property and the CDOT process, please contact Tawana Kelly, Real Estate Specialist, at 303.757.9846 or email@example.com.
CDOT began the acquisition of properties for the I-70 East project in the fall of 2013. The residential properties in this first phase have now been acquired and the occupants have been relocated into permanent replacement housing. In addition, each property has been cleared of asbestos and any hazardous materials. For the safety of residents, we will soon begin demolition of these residential properties. At any given time, there will be several residences in various states of demolition.
If you have any questions or concerns about these demolitions, please call 303.757.9413 and leave a message.
