    DenPo Reader: CDOT Obscured True Taxpayer Cost of I-70 Widening

    This is not noteworthy, it’s common practice. Quoting from the article:

    “CDOT says it typically does not include financing or operating costs in its project estimates.” It seems unethical to not at least estimate what may become the next generation’s burden.

    CDOT is actually much more open than most agencies as those costs were in fact disclosed. The clarity on this project compared to RTD’s P3 clustermess is light years better. Secondly, Denver voters recently passed $930 million for bonding of various city projects. That’s the estimated costs of projects in today’s $’s and does not include the total costs over the life cycle including financing. Nothing new or to see here.
