US 24 Recommendations Available for Community Review Public invited to learn about draft study recommendations and provide input

September 25, 2017 - Southeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 2 - Colorado Springs – A transportation study of US 24 between Powers Boulevard (CO 21) and
the Town of Ramah is nearly complete.

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is conducting this Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study to identify projects that improve regional and local mobility, improve intersection operations, and enhance safety for all corridor users.

Transportation improvement alternatives were developed and screened using local agency and public stakeholder input.  Draft study recommendations and evaluation of these improvements will be presented at the study’s final public meeting on Sept. 28. Recommendations vary by location, include widening of US 24, addition of passing lanes, intersection improvements, trail and sidewalk upgrades, and more.

Please attend the meeting to review the draft recommendations and provide input that will be used to refine the study recommendations.

In 2005, CDOT established an Access Control Plan along US 24 from Peterson Boulevard to Elbert Road, east of Falcon. The existing Access Control Plan will be updated with minor modifications to reflect the study recommendations for roadway and intersection configurations. No changes are proposed to the number or types of accesses shown in the Access Control Plan. These recommendations will be shared at the Sept. 28 public meeting and will be documented in an amendment to the Access Control Plan.

Reasonable accommodations will be provided upon request for people with disabilities. If you require special accommodations to participate contact Leah Langerman at 720-225-4651 or [email protected].
