The 'Super Slab'

A private company plans a super highway through rural Colorado.

"...that a private company wants to build the 210-mile Front Range Toll Road, which would feature a high-speed highway and two sets of tracks for coal and freight trains... The project has galvanized communities east of Interstate 25, which vow to fight it with all they have.

...many worry that the roadway would be a new engine for uncontrolled growth."
