It's gonna be basically impossible to build a metro-corridor from Albuquerque to Denver. Well I mean, basically impossible unless you're cool with removing several entire mountain ranges.

Umm... Except for la veta pass Interstate 25 runs east of the Rockies from Denver to Albuquerue. More possible than you think.

Denver to SLC, on the other hand, you'd be 100% correct about.

There's also Raton Pass, which is nothing to sneeze at.

A big problem of an urban corridor for CO Springs to ABQ is that of not enough water to prop up an exploding population.

Yes, that's most certainly true, but that's b/c not so much because of native water (the Rockies trap a lot), but b/c CO sold much of its water to AZ and CA long ago.
