Interstate 70 Now Has a Web Site

A website created by the I-70 Mountain Corridor Coalition will help everyone who wants to stay informed about planned improvements along the state's main east-west highway corridor.

"We're really trying to be friendly to the public and help people understand what's going on and who the players are," said coalition director Flo Raitano.

Along with providing timely I-70 information for travelers, also includes a link to sign up for the coalition's e-newsletter, to be published throughout the year to inform people about coalition activities and transportation issues under discussion at the state level.

Timely notice about any upcoming public involvement opportunities is a key part of the e-newsletter, Raitano said.

The site also includes tips for avoiding highway congestion and links to live highway web cams.

The redesigned website contains information tips for avoiding traffic congestion on I-70, the latest news about the coalition and its history, vision and strategy for the future. The site also includes a link to the Colorado Department of Transportation's (CDOT) live Web cams where users can preview traffic along the corridor 24 hours per day.
