Studies & Assessments for US Highways
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.

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 34, US 287 to Larimer County Rd. 3 EA and FONSI

April 2007 - Environmental Assessment (EA) - The purpose of the proposed project is to provide an improved transportation facility between US 287 and LCR 3 that would meet the following needs: Improve current and future traffic mobility, Improve transportation safety, and Accommodate 2030 travel demand. July 2007 - Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) - This project encompasses approximately 6 miles of US 34 (also known as Eisenhower Boulevard) in Loveland, Colorado. The project corridor extends between a western terminus at US 287 (North Lincoln Avenue and North Cleveland Avenue one-way pair) and an eastern terminus of Larimer County Road 3 (LCR 3), 1.5 miles east of the I-25 interchange.

US 36 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)

From 2003 to 2009, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the Regional Transportation District (RTD), in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), studied multi-modal transportation improvements for the U.S. 36 corridor between Denver and Boulder in the U.S. 36 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

US 50 Access Control Plan

US 50 is an important resource for the communities of Colorado's Western Slope. Traffic volumes on US 50 are projected to significantly increase in the future. One of the best ways to keep the highway safe and efficient is to manage the location and design of intersections and driveways (access points). This ACP evaluated the portion of the US 50 corridor located just west of Grand Mesa Avenue to SH 141A in Whitewater. Keywords: Studies, US Highways, Access Control Plan

US 50 East

The US 50 corridor between Pueblo and the Kansas line is approximately 150 miles long and connects four counties and 10 municipalities in Southeastern Colorado. Keywords: Studies, US Highways

US 287 at Lamar

In the early 1980's, City of Lamar and Prowers County officials began developing a vision for an alternate truck route around the City of Lamar. They believed that a truck route taking trucks off of US 287 would improve traffic safety in the community by reducing the current volume of truck traffic along Main Street through the city. A Task Force of local business owners and officials was created to promote the vision of a truck route. The Task Force approached the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and requested that such a truck route be included in long range planning efforts. Keywords: Studies, US Highways

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.
