The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) along with Ames Granite, the design-build contractor for U.S. 36 Express Lanes, will be holding three public meetings along the U.S. 36 corridor to announce the start of construction and introduce the project team.


At each of these meetings, the project team will provide an overview of the project and schedule, including traveler impacts, and will be available to answer any questions.


The $312 million multimodal project will build an express lane in each direction on U.S. 36 from Federal Boulevard to 88th Street in Louisville/Superior. The lanes will accommodate high-occupancy vehicles, bus rapid transit and tolled single-occupancy vehicles. In addition, the project will replace several bridges, build a commuter bikeway, add bus rapid transit improvements and install intelligent transportation systems for tolling, transit, traveler information and incident management.
