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 6 & Wadsworth Boulevard Environmental Assessment
The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) in conjunction with the study of possible improvements to the US 6 (6th Avenue) and Wadsworth Boulevard interchange and to Wadsworth Boulevard from approximately 4th Avenue to 14th Avenue. Keywords: Studies, US Highways
US 24 West
The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) assembled a team to study short- and long-term strategies to address capacity issues on the US 24 West corridor from Manitou Springs to I-25. The team consists of CDOT, FHWA, and the consulting firms of CH2M HILL and Wilson & Company. Keywords: Studies, US Highways
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 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 160 EIS
The proposed project is located in La Plata County, Colorado. The project length on US 160 would be 16.2 miles, extending from milepost (MP) 88.0, located east of Durango , to MP 104.2, located east of Bayfield. The project length on US 550 would be 1.2 miles, extending from MP 16.6, located at the US 160/US 550 (south) intersection, to MP 15.4, located south of the US 550/County Road (CR) 220 intersection. Keywords: Studies, US Highways
US 550 Environmental Assessment & Finding Of No Significant Impact
The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), prepared this Environmental Assessment (EA) of the potential environmental, social, and economic impacts of proposed improvements to US 550. The purpose of the project is to improve safety and meet projected demand for highway capacity between Durango, Colorado, and the New Mexico line. The improvements will be located entirely in La Plata County, Colorado. 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
US 85 PEL
The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is conducting a study referred to as the US 85 Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL). The objective of the US 85 PEL Study is to develop a strategic vision for US 85 between I-76 and the Town of Nunn. Keywords: Studies, US Highways, PEL
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 6 Clifton Access Control Plan
Region 3 of the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and Mesa County have identified a need to improve future traffic operations on US 6 between the I-70 Business Loop and the railroad viaduct east of 33 Road by developing an access management plan (AMP) . This ACP evaluated the portion of the US 6 corridor located from the Interstate 70 (I-70) Business Loop to the viaduct over the Union Pacific Railroad east of 33 Road. Keywords: Studies, US Highways, Access Control Plan
US 6 Clifton Transportation Study
The US 6 Clifton Transportation Study is a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study that will analyze transportation issues and explore a range of short- and long-term improvements to improve operational performance and safety and potentially reduce congestion along the US 6C corridor in unincorporated Mesa County. Keywords: Studies, US Highways, PEL
US 6 West & CO 139 Access Control Plan
The US 6 West/SH 139 Access Plan will assess the existing and proposed intersections and driveways along the section of US 6 between the Redlands Parkway and 12 Road and on SH 139 between N 1/4 Road and I-70 and, if appropriate, make recommendations for changes. Keywords: Studies, US Highways, Access Control Plan
US 6/River Frontage Road Access Control Plan
The US 6/River Frontage Road Access Control Plan will assess the existing and proposed access points along US 6 and the River Frontage Road within the study area for the community of Silt, and make recommendations for changes if appropriate. Keywords: Studies, US Highways, Access Control Plan
US 24 PEL Study
The US 24 Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study will identify transportation issues and develop and analyze a range of alternatives to reduce congestion, and improve operational performance and safety along the US 24 corridor in El Paso County, between Powers Boulevard (SH 21) and the Town of Ramah.

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.
