E-470 is a 47-mile-long (76 km) controlled-access toll road traversing the eastern portion of the Denver-Aurora Metropolitan Area in the US state of Colorado. The toll road is not a state highway, but is instead owned and maintained by the E-470 Public Highway Authority, which is controlled by a governing board of eight elected officials of local governments. Construction and operation involves no state or federal funding or taxes. As of 2013, 85% of its revenues were derived from tolls.

The tollway begins at the I-25 / SH 470 interchange in Lone Tree and runs east and north through Aurora, intersecting with I-70. The highway continues north, passing west of Denver International Airport to connect with I-76 in Brighton and Commerce City before curving west and ending at an interchange with I-25 and the Northwest Parkway in Thornton.

E-470 is the eastern portion of what was originally conceived as I-470, an outer beltway for metropolitan Denver. The quasi-government entity that manages the highway, the E-470 Public Highway Authority, consists of eight member jurisdictions: Adams, Arapahoe, and Douglas counties and the cities of Aurora, Brighton, Commerce City, Thornton, and the town of Parker. In addition to all of these jurisdictions, E-470 also passes through the City and County of Denver near Denver International Airport. Affiliate, non-voting members of the Authority, which the highway does not directly serve, are the cities of Arvada and Greeley, and Weld County and the City and County of Broomfield. Ex-officio members are the Colorado Department of Transportation, the Denver Regional Council of Governments and the Regional Transportation District. The authority is headquartered in Aurora.

The toll rate on E-470, roughly 36 cents per mile, is one of the highest rates of any toll road in the United States.

Life of a Bizjet.

This aircraft belongs to Skye Gryphon of Concord, New Hampshire.

It left home in early December and spent some weeks shuttling between Colorado ski resorts.

On January 8 it flew Aspen – Monterrey – Kona (Hawaii) – Pago Pago. On January 11 it flew to New Zealand and has been meandering around here since then. I can’t imagine why Wellington – perhaps it’s the attraction of the women’s beach volleyball.
