This Meeting Has Been Cancelled.
El Paso County Public Services has scheduled a public meeting to give residents the opportunity to learn more about the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) Division of Transit & Rail’s new Interregional Connectivity Study (ICS), which will examine technology, alignment, and financial/funding options for implementing high speed rail along the Front Range.
The meeting is set for 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 25, at the Pinery Events Center in Black Forest which is located at 12375 Black Forest Road.
El Paso County Commissioner Darryl Glenn and Colorado State Representative Amy Stephens will participate in the meeting, both of whom represent residents in the Black Forest and Monument-Palmer Lake areas. Transportation planners from the CDOT and El Paso County Public Services will also be available at the meeting.
The study has a broad reach, extending from Fort Collins to Pueblo through both the Denver and Colorado Springs metropolitan areas. It builds from past feasibility and technical studies related to high speed rail options across Colorado. The project team for the Front Range study is also coordinating with another CDOT team which is studying the feasibility of an Advanced Guideway System (AGS) from Denver to Eagle using the Interstate70 mountain corridor.
CDOT has established a website with more detailed information about the Interregional Connectivity Study at www.coloradodot.info/projects/ICS.
