I-70 Coalition Project

CDOT is seeking public input on Front Range Passenger Rail (FRPR) service via an online “meeting” that will be open through July 31.  The viability of a future high speed transit system in the mountain corridor is largely dependent on connection with a Front Range system.  Although the below release references “Coloradans along the Front Range”, CDOT has confirmed that they want to hear from ALL Coloradans with an interest in FRPR.

Please offer your input at www.frontrangepassengerrailmeeting.com and forward this information on to your networks as appropriate.
