People choose to take E-470 because it provides a quick, safe, and reliable commute. To continue maintaining this level of service, the E-470 Public Highway Authority will kick off construction on its next phase of road widening, which will add a third travel lane in each direction of E-470 along an 11-mile stretch from I-70 to 104th Avenue.

The project also includes a four-mile expansion of the High Plains Trail between 26th and 64th avenues to continue growing the trail network in the east metro area for people on foot and on bikes. The road widening and trail expansion are anticipated to be complete in 2025.

Additional Travel and Safety Enhancements:

Funding for this multi-million-dollar project comes from E-470 toll revenue with no local, state, or federal funds being utilized.
