I-25 Gap project: First of two public hearings happening tonight

Two public hearings on the Interstate 25  "Gap" project will take place this week, with the first hearing happening this evening in Douglas County, and the second happening at Liberty High School on Wednesday. 

Officials are currently accepting public comment on an environmental assessment, released late last month, that details the widening of the "Gap" between Monument and Castle Rock.

CDOT has proposed adding a pair of toll lanes to widen the 17-mile stretch—but the plan had drawn heavy opposition from residents and public officials. While CDOT is unlikely to change its mind about the proposed lanes, transportation officials will "review and consider all comments" and determine whether to make any changes to the proposal.  

Those who can't make it to the hearings can also submit written comments on the project website (i25gap.codot.gov) or to the project email (i25gap@cdot.us).

The public comment period on the assessment will end on May 29. 

Meeting details:
The first public hearing is from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, 500 Fairgrounds Road, in Castle Rock. The second is set for 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on May 16 at Liberty High School, 8720 Scarborough Drive, in Colorado Springs.
