They have been doing "studies" on I70 since I moved here in 1990. They just seem to come up with more "studies". The problem is the money ain't there to widen it to an 8 lane highway with light rail. Plus it'll be a huge cluster fuck of a project. 10 years minimum to complete, maybe 20. Still, if they had of started it in 1990 it would probably be done by now.
It is what it is. If you are not opposed to early starts, it's pretty manageable, but it is also a source of frustration for lot's for Denver locals. I sure would be happy if they'd do something about it, besides starting another study...
I solved my frustration I just live up here and laugh at the people that have to drive up. I do like playing can we tow their car in my parking lot at my condo though that's always an amusing option. Just like the oops I locked the door to the hot tub sorry you can't come in you don't live here.
That traffic on the way down always seems worse to me than the traffic going up. Either way, I was debating whether or not I wanted to get a pass, but seeing that it is going to cost me $40 less than last year, I might as well.
