After shovels were ceremoniously dipped in Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) sand, Colorado Governor Jared Polis said the I-25/Exit 11 Interchange improvement would not only be a safety upgrade for the traffic expected to be generated by the new Fishers Peak State Park, but also a driver of tourism that could support small businesses in downtown Trinidad.  

While standing in front of the Trinidad Port of Entry Polis said, “We want as many Coloradans and tourists visiting our state to have easy access to explore all the beauty our state has to offer. By making it easier to get to Colorado’s state parks we are benefitting not just Coloradans’ outdoor experiences but also the state’s economy. This new exit will be a valuable addition to reduce traffic, improve safety and support our newest state park, Fishers Peak and nearby Trinidad Lake State Park, as well as be a driver of tourism supporting our small businesses in downtown Trinidad.”
