The Study

Metrolink commutersThe I-70 Planning and Environmental Linkages (I-70 PEL) Study will provide a broad framework and implementation strategies to meet the desired future mobility and accessibility needs of this critical regional transportation link. It will consider important sustainability elements affecting the corridor - such as issues related to economic development opportunities, transportation safety, the environment, future multimodal needs, freight and port distribution needs, and social equity.

Ultimately, the I-70 PEL will develop a transportation vision for the future of the corridor.
