Its definitely a convenient place too live. If it didn't exist I would have ended up in durango, portland(Sandy actually), Seattle.

However it does exist. The people that live here are very laid back. The uptight crowd is definately not made up of the ones that are living and working locally. Everyone I work with and everyone I've met locally are super chill.

Im sure in 3 years someone will say it takes 5 years to be "local" in 5 years some will say 10. After that they will require birth certificate for "local" status. Im just happy to live/work here and live the "local" life

I'm not Civil, but I would think there is almost certainly something in one of the USDOT CFR titles that would require them to shut down the Eisenhower Tunnel were they to work on expanding it for safety of motorists. The fact that I70 carries so much commercial traffic means it's almost impossible to shut down the tunnel. Even if they aren't required by regulation to close it, I'm sure they would. I know there were major problems when they were doing the original bores and they ran into problems with slip planes existing in the actual Loveland pass mountains.

I couldn't even the budget to rebore those tunnels to support another lane or two of traffic each. It would have to close to a billion dollars. Plus I have no doubt they'd go overbudget and overschedule on such a project, further delay commercial traffic it's most effecient route.

You're local when you don't give a shit that you live here and it pisses people off that you could give two craps about their feelings or what they're trying to tell you. Now frankly I think Friday -Sunday truck traffic needs to be increased I want a convoy 3 lanes wide 400 units long trucking up the hill at 15 mph. I would be very happy with this. I also want a unicorn but that isn't going to happen either.
