'Central 70' highway project to bring jobs, opposition

Colorado Department of Transportation officials want to help Commerce City and the surrounding area by requiring that 20 percent of highway construction workers come from there for the new “Central 70” project.

The $1.2 billion project would move Interstate 70 below ground between Brighton and Colorado boulevards southwest of Commerce City. About 350 workers from Commerce City and the north Denver neighborhoods near Interstate 70 would be hired from low-income areas surrounding road construction under federal program road construction requirements.
