About the Project

CDOT wants your input on I-270 improvements - YouTube

Corridor Overview

Smart Commute’s service area covers the northern portion of the proposed I-270 Corridor Improvements, and serves as the TMA gateway between the I-70 east traffic and those moving north on I-25, or west along US36. The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), in conjunction with the City of Commerce City and Adams County, are initiating the I-270 Corridor Improvements project to implement transportation solutions that modernize the I-270 corridor to accommodate transportation demands. The 7-mile-long I-270 corridor serves as an inner beltway for the Denver region, providing a direct connection between I-25 and I-70. It is a corridor of commerce, where the region’s key industry clusters of energy, advanced manufacturing, and logistics companies reside.
