CDOT releases 600 page US36 public-private partnership agreement

At 4pm today, CDOT released the agreement for the US36 public-private partnership proposal.

I’m glad to see that CDOT released the more detailed version of the agreement they are proposing to sign regarding the US36 public-private partnership. Read my previous blog for some background. 

Any agreement must protect the public interest and ensure that Colorado is getting a good deal. Check here for our principles.

The devil’s in the details and that’s why we’re reviewing the documents and consulting experts as well as continuing to speak with CDOT to get the clarity we and the public need to analyze this deal.

As we learn more, we’ll post the information on our website. Feel free to contact us using our online submission form if you have specific concerns in the agreement.
