    Riddle me this: you drive up Floyd Hill in three lanes, which goes down to two and causes a huge backup, then it’s two lanes for a few miles, then the highway goes back to three on days the lane is open? Why wouldn’t the lane be built all the way back to the merge? 🤦

    I imagine the lane will get jammed with powderhounds wanting to pay the toll to get ahead of everyone, only to cause a massive backup in the lane. And with enough traffic, there will be backups where the lane ends and merges back.

    Just blow the fucking highway up already and build the tram.
    The fake benefit of 2 minutes for the current toll lane that cost taxpayers $26 million wouldn't make a dent in the westbound backups.

    Monorail won't work. Physics says it won't work in the mountains and people won't pay huge dollars to spend more time traveling and humping gear from car to bus to train to bus and back again. And summers would also kill it with lack of paying customers.

    RTD ridership is diminishing in the metro area. Why would anyone spend billions for a bottomless pit of debt?

    OFFICIAL I70 BITCH THREAD....

    I’ll bring this thread back around. Make 285 a real highway to Fairplay and/or tunnel through Mosquito Pass. Give people more options than one falling apart highway.

    Or better yet: make Cheyenne or Sinclair WY the next big thing.

    A) If it was an easy, no traffic commute to the mountains on a magnificent, freshly paved, heated, snow free, 10 lane highway, you would still have dickheads in Jeep Grand Cherokees driving 100 mph, tailgating and eventually rolling their vehicles in front of a semi, causing hours of backups.

    B) The mountains are full, why does everyone think we need to fix this whole I70 traffic thing? It is a valve, and the only thing keeping the mountain towns from being ruined even more. Let people stay home and avoid skiing on weekends because they are afraid of traffic! I'm gonna let you folks in on a little secret: Occupancy and sales for mountain businesses are through the roof! That sure as hell ain't because I70 was better this season.

    C) I want a monorail so that I can go to concerts in the city without driving and there better be a goddamned bar car.

    Google tells me that a high speed lift goes 12mpg - Google Maps says 20 miles from Idaho Springs to A-Basin, another 6 to Keystone and then 10 to Breck

    Parking lot at Idaho Springs and 3hrs lift ride later and your at Breck - has to be less than a billion, right?

    Make them heated seats and with a bubble, grab a sixer for the ride home

    I'd check your Google maps again.
    And if a high speed lift gets 12mpg, that'd be amazing.

    My mileage was as the crow flies - no need to follow the highway, but don't drop your glove

    The units are obviously Miles Per Galactic year. 12mpg is slow AF

    Oops - 12mph instead of mpg (which is likely about .1mpg)

    285 was just fine yesterday morning. Until the rollover accident that stopped us dead for 90 minutes. I'm sure that didn't help the holiday CF.
