The June 16 Westside Pioneer stated that four citizen ideas on Westside Highway 24 had been rejected going into the open
house June 22, but only identified two of them.
The other two were:
· Closing Colorado Avenue to traffic through Old Colorado City (24th to 27th streets) - state officials said this was inconsistent with the city transportation plan.
· Connecting the Martin Luther King Expressway with Westside Highway 24 - an environmental assessment on a previous state highway project had “eliminated this as non-feasible,” according to Mary Jo Vobejda, a consultant to the Colorado Department of Transportation.
