The Details

There are a lot of interchanges and toll roads in the USA. One of these is the E-470 road. Its length is 76 km, this highway is a section of a toll road. The Denver-Aurora Highway runs through the eastern part of the Denver-Aurora area in Colorado (hence the name). It is worth noting that the road is not a state highway, although it was initially assumed that the highway would be qualified as a state one.

The Denver-Aurora Highway forms an alternative route that travelers use to take a shortcut that bypasses east Denver. The toll road starts at section I-25 and runs east through Aurora. The Denver-Aurora E470 is an extension of the SH 470 toll road. The route has also been extended to the I-70 interchange in the east, and to I-25 in the north.

History of creation

In the 1960s, the Colorado Department of State expressed the need for a beltway around Metro Denver. Local authorities sent a request to the Federal Highway Administration. According to the plan, over 80% of the funds were to be allocated by the federal budget.

In 1968, the E-470 was to become part of the Interstate Highway. Initially, the Denver City Council approved the project, initiating engineering studies. But during the analysis of the environmental impact, the project had to be abandoned. But still part of the road remained, and it was decided to make it paid. In 2016-2017 E-470 was extended to three lanes between Parker Road, and Queens Avenue in southeast Aurora.

The road today

To date, the length of the Denver-Aurora roadway is over 75 thousand kilometers.

The main interchanges in the south are:

  • I-25 / US 87 / SH 470 in Lone Tree;

  • I-70 / US 36 / US 40 / US 287 in Aurora;

  • I-76 / US 6 in Commerce City;

  • US 85 in Brighton.

The main interchange in the North End is I-25 / US 87 / Northwest Parkway in Thornton. The fare is formed taking into account the characteristics of vehicles, and therefore there is no single tariff scale.

Love the app, use it every week
Saved our day when we were on a trip and had to take a toll road on our way home
This App allows us worry-free travel on TOLL ROADS...Automatically replenishing our account, notifying us of Automatically paying our access to the Toll Road. Great relief from expensive citations for not paying while driving. Thank you. P.S. A receipt is always sent to us.

The app saves me a ton extra minutes every day. Took the worry out of paying our tolls. Thank you🌴
Better than a toll tag, I use one app on both vehicles and will link my wife's car next week. Easy to travel to other states, since you're registered with all toll authorities they cover.
Been going back to the office a little so been driving more. This is great.
