470 is just way too far out to be an effective beltway. And it's too big of a loop to be a useful bypass for interstate traffic, except on the very very worst of days on I-25. It's been a big mistake, pretty much from the beginning.

I-225 is the appropriate place for a beltway. If Denver was ever going to build one, they should have done it then and there.
