The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will host an informational Open House Wednesday night to discuss the construction project and traffic impacts.The meeting will be held at Ute Pass Elementary School, 9230 Chipita Park Road, in Chipita Park, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Vehicle registration fees are funding the projects.
