  Latest Projects

The Colorado Department of Transportation is currently working on several major ITS projects. The first of these is the Colorado Transportation Management System (CTMS), which is underway and encompasses a number of statewide ITS integration activities through a FY 1998 earmark. The CTMS builds on ITS systems and architecture developed in recent years during the state-funded Revised Model Deployment Initiative (RMDI). The second uses a FY 2000 earmark to support the I-25 Southeast Corridor project. The latter is a $1.5 billion program to provide capacity and transit improvements to I-25 from south Denver through the Denver Tech Center in the southern suburbs; the most heavily traveled interstate highway segment in Colorado. ITS activities for that project are only recently underway.

I-70 West Integration Project

This project is one of two using a FY 2001 earmark. While the first of these is focused on the Colorado Transportation Management Center (CTMC), this project allows for the acceleration of ITS integration efforts along the I-70 mountain corridor west of Denver. The Colorado Transportation Commission has identified this stretch of highway as a priority corridor, and it has been the focus of intensive study over the past five years.

I-25 Southeast Corridor and CTMS Integration Activities

C.D.O.T. Is currently working on two major ITS projects. The first is the Colorado Transportation Management System (CTMS), which is underway and encompasses a number of statewide ITS integration activities. The CTMS builds on the ITS systems and architecture developed in recent years during the state-funded Revised Model Deployment Initiative (RMDI). The second is the I-25 Southeast Corridor project. This is a $1.5 billion program to provide capacity and transit improvements to the I-25 corridor from south Denver through the Denver Technological Center (DTC) in the southern suburbs, the most heavily traveled segment of interstate highway in Colorado. ITS planning activities for that project are in progress as C.D.O.T. Realizes that active ITS measures will be required to operate and manage the corridor over the required five to seven year construction period.

Colorado Transportation Management Center (CTMC) Integration Project

C.D.O.T. Is currently working on several major ITS projects. The CTMS builds on ITS systems and architecture developed in recent years during the state-funded Revised Model Deployment Initiative (RMDI). The second uses a FY 2000 earmark to support the I-25 Southeast Corridor Transportation Expansion (T-REX) project. The latter is a $1.5 billion program to provide capacity and transit improvements to I-25 from south Denver through the Denver Tech Center in the southern suburbs - the most heavily traveled interstate highway segment in Colorado. ITS activities for that project are only recently underway.

Shared Resources
Wireline Communications


Having been encouraged to pursue public/private initiatives through the Telecommunication Act of 1996, Colorado Department of Transportation entered into a contract with Adesta Communications (formerly MFS Network Technologies) in March of 1999 to essentially “share” the use of controlled access facility rights-of-way in Colorado. Such facilities include interstate highways and state highways, such as US 36 between Denver and Boulder, in which there are designated entrance and exit ramps. The exchange is based on the premise that C.D.O.T. Would give up land to a communications provider, in exchange for fiber optics and communication equipment to be used to create a high speed communications backbone that will be used at C.D.O.T. To support traveler information services. Although the request for proposals (RFP) released in March of 1998 is still open for response by the telecommunication industry, C.D.O.T. Currently has only one such contract in place. The network overview map shows areas included in this build.
