DENVER (AP) -- Ray Wells is intent on building the 210-mile private toll road from north of Fort Collins to south of Pueblo even after new laws restrict such efforts.
He has hired engineering and construction firm Kellogg Brown and Root. It's gathering names and addresses of property owners who could be affected by the road.
The new laws requires developers to use certified mail to notify all property owners in a three-mile-wide path along the road's proposed route.
Opponents vowed to continue their fight. They say residents are worried Wells' project could cut off some county roads, forcing emergency vehicles, school buses and all other traffic to detour many miles to find an overpass.
