Draft Study Recommendations Identified for the WestConnect Planning and Environmental Linkages Study

Jan. 2, 2018 -

Crews have nearly completed a transportation study of portions of C-470, US Highway 6, and Colorado Highway 93 between Littleton and Boulder.

CDOT and the WestConnect Coalition of agencies have been conducting a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study to evaluate and develop short-term and long-term transportation alternatives, and to identify proposed improvements along C-470, between Kipling Street and Interstate 70, and along the US 6/CO 93 corridor between Golden and Boulder.

The PEL study evaluated options to reduce congestion, improve operational performance and safety, and address future transportation needs. 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 round of public meetings this month. Recommendations vary by location, and include roadway laneage, intersection/interchange, trail, technology, and corridor management improvements.

Members of the public are invited to attend one of the three upcoming public meetings to review the draft recommendations. The meetings will all present the same information in open house format, with a brief presentation. Please attend the meeting most convenient for you to discuss the study with project team members and provide your feedback. Public input is an important component of this study, and CDOT will consider your comments as they refine the recommended improvements.

All meetings are from 4:30-6:30 p.m., with presentations at 5:15 p.m. For special accommodations, contact Leah Langerman at 720-225-4651 or [email protected].
