Central 70 Industry Forum
The Colorado Department of Transportation held an Industry Forum for the Central 70 Project on March 11-12, 2015 at the National Western Complex in Denver, Colorado.
The Central 70 project proposes to bring major improvements to one of the region's most critical highway segments. The Industry Forum was an opportunity to showcase the proposed Central 70 Project, explore creative approaches to project development, and seek early input from attendees on procurement design and cost saving ideas. Because the Central 70 Project is one of the largest transportation projects in the country, the Forum attracted a wide array of participants including global contractors and developers, engineering and design firms, investors and lenders and local, DBE, and specialty contractors.

The Industry Forum was a critical step in the process to determine a funding and procurement plan for the proposed Central 70 project. A funding plan is a required element of the Record of Decision, which is the document that completes the I-70 East Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The Industry Forum does not preclude or circumvent the outcome of the ongoing EIS for I-70 East.
