CDOT Called Me Back
CDOT Calls Back
I left an email on the CDOT website inquiring about the plans for the Alameda and Sante Fe interchange as well as why northbound on I 25 comes to a dead stop from University to Speer. Were there plans to improve it? What was the overall plan? This was based on personal frustration on a Sunday afternoon at 12:00 when I was stuck in traffic for no apparent reason.
A few weeks later, a program Engineer from CDOT, Jay, called me to answer my questions and explain the projects and challenges. I was very impressed.
Here is what he shared with me.
Sante Fe and Alameda is in phase 1.4, the final stages of completion of a single point urban change under I25. This is slated to completed Oct. – Nov 2016.
Phase two will encompass reconstructing Alameda over the Platte river to eliminate the I25 northbound entrance on Cedar. This is currently unfunded at around a 30 million dollar estimate.
Phase 3 is estimated at 60 million and with inflation and timing of when it would be underway would be more like 100 million. This phase's goal is to separate Northbound traffic exiting onto highway 6 from I 25 Northbound traffic. Unfortunately, this is the narrowest restricted area from the railway to the Platte river creating all kinds of political implications with the rail road since the rail road has owned the right away since the 1800’s.
Jay shared that CDOT is really trying to improve the customer service and answer any questions taxpayers may have with all of the construction around Denver and frustration of increased traffic.
Here are some fun facts and acronyms for you:
Capacity for traffic is 1600 cars per lane per traffic
TIP = Transportation Improvement Plan
STIP = Statewide Transportation Improvement Plan
The TIP informs the STIP for funneling the plan.

On any given day, CDOT is dealing with utility ground walls and finding out that utilities management may not know what they have, contaminated water, waterline relocations and many more surprises under the ground.
