Will the Rocky Mountain HyperLoop Become a Reality?

artistic rendering of what the Rocky Mountain Hyperloop could look likeImagine being rocketed through the Colorado countryside in a levitating pod at blistering speeds up to 700 mph. This would mean that commuters traveling from Fort Collins to Colorado Springs could get to their destination in as little as 20 minutes. Currently, drivers traveling that distance would spend 2 hours and 34 minutes in the car if there was ZERO traffic.

If this prospect has peaked your interest, you are not alone. The Colorado Department of Transportation is considering this Rocky Mountain Hyperloop very seriously. In the next months, they will determine whether they can partner with Hyperloop One to bring this futuristic technology to Colorado. The Hyperloop would be centered at the Denver International Airport and it would stretch to Fort Collins, Cheyenne, Pueblo and Vail for a  $24 billion price tag.

For now, CDOT is focusing efforts on a feasibility study to determine how they could gain approval from the federal government and how they could establish consistent requirements for routes. They’re also focusing on building a hyperloop in phases, starting with stops that would benefit the most from this technology, as well as present fewer logistical construction barriers. So what’s their first proposed phase? The 40 mile stretch from Greeley to the Denver International Airport could be started for just $3 billion.

The hyperloop has extraordinary potential. According to recent statistics, half of working adults in Fort Collins alone commute to work each day in other communities. The hyperloop could reduce the commute for many Colorado residents, enable people to live and work virtually anywhere in the state, and reduce the traffic congestion on our roads, likely resulting in less distracted driving related, and other types of car accidents. It could also be used to transport goods and services across the state rapidly.

Not everyone is on board with the new technology, however. Many believe that the hyperloop is just a dream project and that Colorado tax money is better spent on road projects now, like the widening of I-25 and the expansion of other highways to accommodate the growing number of residents in the state.
