I-25 and University Boulevard Interchange Photosimulations

CDOT, Denver, Colorado

POITRA Visual was asked to create a photo-realistic simulations of the south I-25 University Interchange. The simulation was to be part of the Colorado Governor's campaign to obtain funding approval for the design and re-construction of the south I-25 corridor with an eye on inreasing capacity.

The redesign of the corridor included minimal additional travel lanes for the highway and the addition of light rail transit. The simulation was intended to show I-25 expanded to meet travel projected needs without the use of a mass transit option. This would be reflected in the ' what if ' simulation by showing I-25 with sixteen travel lanes.

POITRA Visual also produced graphics for each alternative depicting land use variations.

The Engineer provided a base aerial photograph looking north on I-25 at University Boulevard Interchange.

POITRA used traditional digital painting techniques to remove or adjust properties and roadways, widen I-25 and modify the University interchange to accommodate the extra lanes. In addition to the existing conditions and sixteen lanes version of the images a land use version was made to emphasize the net land area take of a sixteen lane I-25.

Graphic artists at POITRA created graphic display board layouts for each image.

The three final simulation display boards were each printed in large color format and mounted to panels. The governor used the displays at press conferances and meetings. A large photo of the governor appeared in Denver Post holding the POITRA displays. Ultimately this effort resulted in funding and construction of the southeast I-25 corridor (TREX) project and it included light rail. end of article
