State transportation officials are applying for a $10 million federal grant to supplement the $20 million currently set aside to build the shoulder lane on eastbound Interstate 70.
Construction is scheduled to start in June on the “peak-period shoulder lane” between Empire and Idaho Springs.
Officials have asked Idaho Springs city council members for a letter of support for the $10 million federal grant request. The letter was expected to be approved at a council meeting this week, said City Administrator Cindy Condon.
