AFTER 37 YEARS AND 26 VOTES
The City of Aspen wants to know
WHERE SHOULD WE GO FROM HERE?
What to do about congestion at the Entrance to Aspen has been debated for nearly 40 years. Finding consensus on the issue has been difficult. In the mid-90s the community, elected officials and state and federal agencies crafted ten project objectives or criteria that any solution to the Entrance to Aspen must meet. In 1998 the Colorado Department of Transportation recommended a solution known as the Preferred Alternative* because it met those criteria. Last November, CDOT confirmed that the Preferred Alternative is still a viable solution to the Entrance to Aspen problem. Because of this confirmation, the Preferred Alternative presents a clear option and the most likely solution that could be implemented quickly.
