  1. The Colorado Department of Transportation has actually committed a modest sum (half a million dollars) to look at potential Hyperloop routes. Colorado has a peculiar combination of circumstances that might lend themselves to Hyperloops: multiple long skinny transportation corridors; predicted large population growth; existing routes where additional lane miles would be painfully expensive. No one thinks that it will do away with cars, certainly not in the short or medium term. But for the 30 years I’ve lived here, the hope for alternatives is just to keep the load on the roads down to the point where they remain usable despite the growth.

    (I had to drive from the western suburbs to out near the airport on the east side of the metro area at rush hour this past Monday evening. I-70 was barely usable. They’re going to rebuild a ten-mile stretch that was the worst part over the next few years. While they’re going to add a lane in each direction, the biggest improvement will be, IMO, replacing the hideous on/off ramps currently in place with something better.)Report
