Colorado drivers may be the first to escape traffic due to a new partnership between state officials and a Los Angeles-based hyperloop tech company.

Arrivo founder Brogan BamBrogan joined Colorado transportation officials leaders in Denver Tuesday to announce a partnership to create a network of roadside tubes at the congested heart of the city that will whisk drivers and their cars to their destinations at speeds up to 200 mph.

The public-private players include Arrivo, the Colorado Department of Transportation and E-470 Public Highway Authority, which operates a 75-mile user-financed toll road running along the eastern perimeter of the city. The Arrivo test site will be near E-470 and groundbreaking is slated for early 2018.
