CDOT attending 420 rallies this week

DENVER -

CDOT is taking a creative approach to have Cannabis users plan ahead before getting high at 420 events this week.

CDOT partnered with Lyft to offer free and discounted rides during multiple events, but the credits for the rides will be hidden in a clever way.

The state will post several 420 milemarker signs at events. It's a nod to the infamous 420 milemaker sign along I-70, which was repeatedly stolen. That sign was later changed to read 419.99.

The 420 milemarker signs at events this week will list a promo code that can be used to activate a $42.00 ride credit from Lyft.

Lyft will have street teams walking around at events to give away ride credits and educate people about CDOT's Drive High, Get a DUI campaign.

CDOT is also displaying a giant candy bar display at the TruCannabis- Mile High event Tuesday to educate people about how edibles affect drivers. It will also be at the Red Rocks Amphitheater on Wednesday, and it will be at the "420 On the Block" event on Thursday.

    Another land swap is on the agenda for Colorado Springs City Council. Under the deal, the City would trade parcels with developer David Jenkins for land located just west of the train tracks near America the Beautiful Park. Swapping the land would allow C-DOT to put in a better design for new storm water infrastructure that is building as part of the I-25 Cimarron Interchange project.
