Maura Troester (cq, left) of Golden watches a presentation by CDOT during a public comment session Tuesday evening at the Colorado School of Mines. Angry residents from Golden and surrounding communities gathered Tuesday May 24, 2005 at a CDOT sponsored Northwest Corridor Public Comment Session at the Colorado School of Mines to protest plans to build a beltway close to the town of Golden. CDOT wants to complete the beltway under the theory it would help alleviate traffic but opponents point out that even the figures in the study show it will increase travel times and not relieve traffic as much as simply improving and linking major arterials would do. They think it will ruin Golden and the town of Golden is vociferously against it. Troester said the big issue for her with the proposed project is the impact on the quality of life for her and the rest of the town of Golden. She said it will increase the amount of pollution in the area as well as causing her to have to pay a toll to driive to Boulder. (MARC PISCOTTY/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) CQ Maura Troester
