Studies & Assessments for State Highways
CO 392 Environmental Overview Study (EOS)

The CO 392 Environmental Overview Study identified a transportation solution supported by local and regional planning partners that identifies right of way, which must be preserved for improvements. This plan will be used by planners to set aside right of way as development occurs along the corridor. The CO 392 EOS study limits are from CO 287 to the west to Weld County Road (WCR) 23 to the east. Keywords: Studies, State Highways, Construction Complete

US 34 Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study

The project will provide for a Planning and Environmental Linkages Study on US 34 from Glade Road west of Loveland to CR 49 east of Greeley. Over the last 10 – 15 years, various studies have been performed throughout this corridor, including an Access Control Plan along US 34 from CR 3 to US 85, an Environmental Assessment along US 34 in Loveland from US 287 east to CR 3 along with other studies. One of the goals of this project is to update and consolidate these studies. \\ Keywords: Studies, US Highways

US 50 West PEL Study

The Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study conducted on US 50 between Swallows Road and Baltimore Avenue in Pueblo County released in June 2012. Keywords: Studies, US Highways

I-76 and Bridge Street Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI)

The proposed I-76 and Bridge Street Interchange Project is located in Brighton, Colorado, in Adams County. The City of Brighton proposes to construct an interchange at I-76 and Bridge Street on the eastern side of the city. The proposed interchange would provide an opportunity to increase regional east-west connectivity across State Highway 7. This regional connectivity will become increasingly important with future population growth and increased travel demand. Keywords: Studies, Interstates

US 287 at Lamar Environmental Assessment and FONSI

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), in cooperation with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), has prepared this Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) to identify and assess a new alignment for U.S. Highway (U.S.) 287 and U.S. 50 through the City of Lamar, Colorado in Prowers County.

US 287 Loveland to Fort Collins Environmental Overview Study (EOS)

January 2007 - The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) developed and initiated the Environmental Overview Study (EOS) process. The EOS process is structured to provide a basis for long-term roadway improvements and to provide support for local planning decisions while considering environmental resources decisions. While no funds are currently programmed for construction, the intended outcome of the process is the preservation of a corridor for future transportation improvements. Through this process, future improvements to the Colorado highway system can be integrated with other local and regional transportation plans resulting in a proactive, environmentally sensitive transportation vision within the North Front Range.

US 287 from CO 1 to the LaPorte Bypass EA and FONSI

September 2004 - Environmental Assessment (EA) - The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in conjunction with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) has been conducting studies to investigate alternatives that would improve mobility (travel conditions) and safety on the stretch of approximately 2 miles of US 287 between SH 1 and the LaPorte Bypass intersection east of the town of LaPorte, mileposts (MP) 348.50 and 350.35. June 2006 - Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) - This document contains a FONSI and selects Preferred Alternative A4 with Reduced Footprint based on the analyses and results in the attached EA.

CO 392 Access Control Plan

October 2006 - Recent and continued growth in along Interstate (I) 25, State Highway (SH) 392, and within the local communities that make up the North Front Range, has resulted in an increase in traffic on the SH 392 corridor. Traffic volumes in the area are expected to at least double in the next 20 years. Without changes to the corridor, this increase in traffic volumes will result in increased delay, higher levels of congestion, and an increase in the severity and number of accidents. The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) has identified the need for an Access Control Plan (ACP) on this corridor to minimize the occurrence of these conditions.

SH 402 EA and FONSI

Environmental Assessment (EA) - July 2007 and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) - January 2008- encompasses the 4-mile length of SH 402 although improvements are not needed for the area between SH 287 and CR 13C (St. Louis Avenue), which was widened by developers in coordination with the city of Loveland and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) under a Categorical Exclusion (CE).

Ports to Plains

This study was a joint effort by four state Departments of Transportation (DOTs) including Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. It includes I-70 from I-25 east to US 40/287 and then south along US 40/287 to the Colorado/Oklahoma border. The purpose was to create a Development and Management plan for the Ports to Plains Corridor, which outlines a proposed plan for the corridor and serves as an essential tool for securing federal funding for corridor development. It contains several elements that improve the transportation network’s ability to move people and goods. Nearly 1,400 miles long, the corridor consists of 511 miles of 4- to 6-lane roadway, 755 miles of 2-lane roadway, and 113 miles of roadway in metropolitan areas.
