US 287/120th Broomfield Multi-Modal Study

Study Complete!

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), in partnership with the City and County of Broomfield (Broomfield), is kicking off a multimodal and safety study to develop concepts to improve the US 287/120th Avenue corridor. The project will seek to understand the impact of changing traffic patterns since the completion of the 120th Avenue Connection project as well as look for ways to improve multimodal capacity and address safety. 120th Avenue is recognized as part of the High Injury Network and a Critical Corridor by the Denver Regional Council of Governments' Taking Action on Vision Zero Plan.

Significant gaps in infrastructure remain for pedestrians and bicycles that need to be addressed. Additionally, the corridor is identified as a potential Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor in the 2014 Northwest Area Mobility Study (NAMS) and the project team will look at options for improving access to transit facilities and operational improvements to increase the reliability of transit.

With a renewed emphasis and heightened awareness of safety and mobility of all users along busy corridors, including planning for vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles and transit, the US 287/120th Avenue Multimodal and Safety Study is an opportunity to create a vision and plan that recognizes the diverse needs of City and County of Broomfield residents, business owners, visitors and traveling public.
