The I-25 & Belleview Avenue Interchange Improvement Study has recently completed an approximately 18-month technical analysis effort to support alternatives development and screening for improving this interchange. Alternatives were analyzed in a detailed evaluation of specific criteria, including traffic operations, safety, multimodal, community impacts (access, environmental, right-of-way, constructability), and cost.

However, before decisions are made on which alternative to move forward to the next stage of the project, it is important to conduct meaningful public involvement. The project team has developed a Public Involvement (PI) Plan that will be implemented in October 2020 and will take advantage of a number of technological resources/tools as conducting PI during the COVID-19 pandemic presents both obvious challenges and new opportunities for engagement. This PI Plan includes a virtual public meeting on October 7 consisting of a project presentation and opportunity for question/answer feedback (see News Feed below for more details).

After completion of the PI process the project’s Executive Committee (EC) will evaluate both the results of the technical analysis and feedback from the public involvement process to make a decision on which alternative will advance to the next stage of the project. The next stage will include preliminary design and NEPA along with additional focus on a project funding plan.

    The I-25 & Belleview Interchange Improvement Study has completed a thorough technical analysis on a range of alternatives to improve the interchange. The last level of screening evaluated the final two build alternatives in greater detail, along with the no-build scenario.

    Please join the project team for a presentation on the latest technical analysis and next steps for the project. Participants will be able to provide input and ask questions. Mark your calendars today. Preregistration information and a link to the virtual meeting will be provided soon.
