November 2010 - DRCOG

posted Nov 17, 2010, 7:56 PM by Todd Miller

DRCOG Notes - November 2010  


Presentation on Western Region High Speed Rail Alliance
      Rail solution best for links of 500 miles or less
      Just as during the Eisenhower process for creating a federal highway networking, lots of questions - 50 years later,the highway system is the backbone of commerce
      some interest in public private partnership

De-designate DRCOG as a 208 agency regarding state wastewater infrastructure planning - Passed
      Costs approximately $ 75,000 per year for DRCOG - limited benefit to DRCOG to be involved.

Appoint 2  to the nominating committee

Highway Devolution Study - HB 1405 - Discussion only

            Change/turnback to local government - could impact Parker Rd and/or Arapahoe Rd  
            Cannot become an unfunded mandate
            Could return 1201 lane miles in DRCOG region
            can abandon or ‘swap’ based on an agreement with the cities -already available option
            could cause a problem with feds, fiber, what does state funding include ( how long?)

Review due to the legislature by February 2011

Bridge Enterprise Program

          Faster fee collected since 2009 for replacement/repair of bridges - one bridge in Centennial rated as poor  - Arapahoe over Cherry Creek - funding  not programmed - should be done by 2017 ( looking to issue bonds  to accelerate the program)
I-70 is 25% of the cost of the project.
