Angry crowd confronts CDOT official over planned I-70 project

An informational meeting organized by Colorado Department of Transportation officials was overtaken by local protesters Thursday night at the Swansea Recreation Center in Central Denver.

Officials had come to detail next-step plans on the $1.2 billion “Central 70” interstate project set to begin early next year. Construction crews will remake 10 miles of I-70 that cut through the neighborhoods of Elyria and Swansea between Interstate 25 and Chambers Road. The officials never got the chance to give their planned presentations. The protesters wanted answers, not information, and mostly, they wanted to halt the project.

Northeast Denver neighborhood is nation’s most polluted

From Denver Post
By Aldo Svaldi | asvaldi@denverpost.com | The Denver Post
PUBLISHED: February 16, 2017 at 5:02 am | UPDATED: February 16, 2017 at 12:29 pm


In the 80216 ZIP code, an index of home values is up 30.1 percent the past year and 250 percent the past five years, handily beating U.S. and Denver averages.

That strong property appreciation is a testament to both how depressed prices were and how desperate buyers are for affordable properties.

Some residents fear the severity of the area’s environmental problems are being ignored and remediation plans remain inadequate. Three major redevelopment projects, including reconstruction of Interstate 70, are combining with booming home and land values to push long-time residents out, said Cdebaca.

“I feel like the new people are clueless” of past polluters, she said. “Sellers aren’t required to report it, and the institutional knowledge is being displaced.”
