The E-470 Public Highway Authority is a political subdivision of the State of Colorado. The Board of Directors consists of eight voting member jurisdictions: Adams, Arapahoe, and Douglas counties and the municipalities of Aurora, Brighton, Commerce City, Thornton, and Parker. Affiliate, non-voting members: Cities of Arvada, Greeley and Lone Tree, City and County of Broomfield, and Weld County.
Ex-officio members: Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) and the Regional Transportation District (RTD).
E-470 is a nonstop, cashless, all-electronic toll highway that does not use any local, state, or federal tax funding to operate, maintain, or improve the road. The 75-mph tollway forms a 47-mile semi-circular beltway around the eastern perimeter of the Denver metropolitan area and provides access to Denver International Airport. E-470 connects in the south to the I-25/C-470 interchange in Douglas County, and connects in the north to the I-25/Northwest Parkway interchange in Adams County.
