This presentation will discuss the challenges that the C70 project team encountered and overcame in delivering the Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) largest design-build/P3 project to date. These challenges included coordination and reconstruction of the UPRR mainline crossing over I-70 into Denver, minimizing environmental impacts to the surrounding community during construction and viaduct demolition, coordination with local agencies and the community on the construction of a new 4-acre park over I-70, and construction of the lowered interstate through a previous Superfund site. This presentation will disseminate best practices, lessons learned, and innovative techniques used by the Central 70 project team to successfully deliver this critical piece of infrastructure for the State of Colorado. 


 1. Incorporate lessons learned and best practices for working with railroads 

2. Acquire knowledge of innovative techniques and strategies to manage and mitigate hazardous materials and environmental impacts 

3. Understand and apply lessons learned on appropriate risk allocation between Owner and Design-Build Contractor on mega projects 

4. Implement innovative strategies and approaches for working with local agencies and the public on designing and constructing a park over the interstate.
