Public Hearing in Pueblo for I-25 Expansion

Pueblo residents are invited to a public hearing tonight about some upcoming planned improvements on Interstate 25.  KRCC’s Eliza Densmore reports.

The Colorado Department of Transportation along with the Federal Highway Administration are hosting the meeting which consists of an information session and an opportunity to ask questions and weigh in on the projects.

Planned improvements include fixing deteriorating roadways, widening the highway between 29th and Indiana Avenue, and adding shoulders.

CDOT spokesman Bob Wilson expects some residents to raise concerns about the highway expansion.

The biggest issues that we have are there’s gonna need to be a realignment of the interstate and there may be some properties that may need to be moved or the freeway will need to go through areas where currently there are some private properties.

Residents are invited to the hearing at the Rawlings Library from 5:30 to 7:30. Those unable to attend are encouraged to submit comments online at i25pueblo.com.
