E-470, a public toll highway in the Denver metropolitan area, is developed and operated by the E-470 Public Highway Authority (E-470). The Authority, established in 1988, is a public-private partnership comprised of eight members: Adams County, Arapahoe County, Douglas County, the City of Aurora, the City of Brighton, the City of Commerce City, the City of Thornton, and the Town of Parker. Highway planning, design, and construction were financed with bonds. The 47-mile highway runs along the eastern perimeter of the Denver metropolitan area from I-25 to the south of Denver to I-25 north of the city and services the Denver International Airport. The first five-mile segment was completed in 1991 and the final 12-mile segment was completed in 2003. E-470 is the first national toll highway to offer dedicated non-stop toll collection at highway speeds.
