Letter: Plan doesn't solve problem

Posted

There are two frontage roads along I-25 from Castle Rock to the Tomah Road exit, one on the east side and one on the west. Together, they have four lanes, two in each direction, the same as I-25. Instead of spending money on the frontage roads, why not solve the real bottleneck - not enough lanes on I-25 between Castle Rock and Monument?

Once I-25 is widened, the congestion problems on the east side frontage road should decrease. Also, until I-25 is widened, maybe the county commissioners should pass a building moratorium for Douglas County. As far as moving the west side frontage road to the other side of the railroad, it makes more sense to keep the road where it is and use the money to widen I-25.
