Opponents say it’s a public health risk since it will be built near the former Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Plant.

The Highway Authority says the toll road will complete the beltway around the Denver metro area. It is asking Broomfield for $2.5 million in funding.

The Broomfield City Council will take public comment on the project at its meeting starting at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

  1. Laura Duffy Norman says:

    It amazes me how the highway authority (Bill Ray) continues telling the media that this will complete the belt way around the city, this will not. The northwest parkway will start at highway 93 in Arvada and end on highway 128 no where near connecting to to C470 or the existing Northwest Parkway in Broomfield.
