Trans-Mountain Highway Route Planned in Northern Colorado BOULDER (AP)- Engineer-] ng consultant Marwood Rupp :old a meeting called by the Colorado Division of Highways Wednesday that he expects the northern Colorado area under consideration for a trans-moun- tain highway will be narrowed corridor by late to a 30-mile June. Rupp said the area north of Interstate 70 in Denver to the Colorado-Wyoming line is under consideration for another route over the Continental Divide. Rupp's firm has been authorized to spend $150,000 to study the feasibility of several trans-mountain r o u t e s . The study must be completed by 5ec. 15 by legislative directive.! Only local county and muni-1 cipal officials have expressed opposition to the plan. Watershed, congestion and environmental problems are cited by officials as probable results of a highway such as the one under consideration if it runs through this area. Rupp said after the meeting he hadn't found the same reaction in other communities. He said it appeared that the farther away one got from Denver's econmic influence, the more important the highway became to the economic growth of other areas--and the more they want the highway.
