ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOV

The Colorado Department of Transportation (DOT) is nearing completion on a project that includes the reconstruction of six major interchanges, the construction of 44 new highway structures, the refurbishment of six to eight lanes of highway, and the addition of two high-occupancy-vehicle (HOV) lanes. The work is being done in Denver on Interstate 25, one of the few direct access routes into Denver's central business district from the north and northwest. The $500 million project boasts two reversible HOV lanes, state-of-the-art traffic management technology, and the Mile High Courtesy Patrol. This article describes the "new" I-25, highlighting the innovative traffic planning and management techniques used during construction. Urban design and hazardous waste mitigation are addressed also.
