Park & Ride Improvements to Begin at Four Front Range Locations

June 19, 2015 - Statewide Transportation Plan - Project includes new travel shelters for Bustang commuters.

EL PASO/LARIMER COUNTIES — The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) begins upgrading a number of park-n-rides along the Interstate 25 corridor next week as preparations continue for the launch of Bustang – the state’s new Interregional Express bus service.  

Bustang begins service on Monday, July 13, and will connect commuters between Denver and Colorado Springs, Denver and Fort Collins and travelers along the I-70 corridor between Denver and Glenwood Springs.

Improvements will be made at the following park-n-rides:

  • Nevada/Tejon (south Colorado Springs)
  • Woodmen Road (north Colorado Springs)
  • Monument
  • I-25 at U.S. 34 (Loveland)

Work at each location consists of new asphalt paving, lighting, striping and signing.  In addition, Bustang travelers will find new shelters equipped with lighting and infrared heating units. 

The project is scheduled for completion in August 2015.

Paving and utility work will be completed in one- to two-week phases, with the shelters set for installation in July.  Impacts to park-n-ride users is expected to be minimal at each location except at Woodmen Road, where a partial to full parking lot closure should be expected.
