Colorado Highway 94 Improvements Component

Project Complete!

The CO 94 project comprises of three elements, each aimed at improving safety and efficiency along the corridor. These three elements are:

  1. Addition of a westbound passing lane, increasing efficiency and safety conditions between North Franceville Coal Mine Road and US 24 - Completed
  2. Installation of fiber from US 24 to Enoch Road, enabling future installation of ITS elements along the corridor and also enabling high speed communications for future planned development - Completed
  3. Signalized “jug handle” intersection at Blaney Road, thereby removing slow moving traffic from the passing lane, and greatly improving efficiency of eastbound traffic. Completed

  • The safety enhancements relate to the potential to reduce crashes, improve infrastructure, and address physical deficiencies that contribute to crashes in the corridor.
  • CDOT conducted a safety assessment for the corridor to evaluate the magnitude and nature of safety problems and analyze the causes of crashes. The proposed transportation improvements are mitigation measures to reduce crashes and improve safety in the corridor. These improvements include:
    • A westbound passing lane, intersection signalization, and improved left turn movement to address and significantly reduce the number and severity of traffic accidents.
    • New CCTV (cameras) installed at the Intersections of Marksheffel Road & CO 94 and also at Enoch Road & CO 94.
