Widening Interstate 70 in Denver would be a waste of money and wouldn’t solve traffic congestion, according to a report from the advocacy group Colorado Public Interest Research Group or CoPIRG.
The group's Danny Katz unveiled the report at the foot of the decrepit I-70 viaduct that splits North Denver. He reminded people that widening Interstate 25 was once promised as a way to relieve congestion.

"Within five years of completion, we saw congestion at pre-construction levels," Katz said.
