SH 83/86 Corridor Optimization Plan

September 2004 - The Corridor Optimization process was created to develop specific corridor visions which are consistent and compatible with local plans and are supported by affected local governments and regional agencies. Officially adopted by the Colorado Department of Transportation in 2001, the Corridor Optimization Guidelines were developed to provide input to the regional transportation planning process by providing an assessment of how to best meet future travel demands on a given corridor. 213MB Keywords: Studies, State 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.

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.

US 385 High Plains Corridor

Development and Management Plan - The High Plains Highway is a 222-mile corridor that begins near Kit Carson and ends at I-80 in Nebraska. It was identified as a corridor connector in the Eastern Colorado Mobility Study. The High Plains Highway Corridor Coalition (HPHC) – a formal association of towns and counties along the corridor - asked the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) to assist the member communities in developing a plan for the corridor to anticipate and prioritize future corridor transportation needs.

City of Glenwood Springs South Bridge Engineering Environmental Assessment

The City of Glenwood Springs, with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Garfield County conducted the Environmental Assessment. The purpose of the South Bridge project is to identify a critical second route between SH 82 and the west side of the Roaring Fork River in the southern portion of Glenwood Springs. This second route responds to the previous Congressional earmark for the Glenwood Springs, South Bridge (new, off-system bridge), Public Law 109-59, 109th Congress. The project will respond to identified transportation needs, such as lack of emergency vehicle access route redundancy and increasing mobility issues along the current primary access route (Midland Avenue) caused by increased growth in the area.

Denver Area Regional Bus Facility Study

September 30, 2015 - Prepared for Greyhound Lines, Inc. and the Colorado Department of Transportation - Greyhound Lines, Inc. (Greyhound) requested funding from the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) to conduct a study to assess the need for a regional bus facility to meet the needs of the passengers on services that are not included in the new Denver Union Station (DUS) bus concourse.

Devolution Study Report

This Devolution Study Report provides information and data pertaining to “commuter highways” within Colorado’s five Metro Planning Organizations (MPOs), per the requirements of CRS 43-2-101.5. For purposes of this report, Devolution is defined as the transference of a highway or segment of highway from state ownership and control to local government ownership and control.

Eastern Colorado Mobility Study

April 2002 - The Eastern Colorado Mobility Study was undertaken to assist the Transportation Commission of Colorado in making investment decisions regarding infrastructure improvements to enhance freight mobility in a large part of the state. The study area includes all of eastern Colorado, extending to the I-25 corridor on the west and Colorado’s borders on the north, east and south. Keywords: Studies, Non-Highways, Active Construction

Northwest Corridor EIS

Northwest Corridor Transportation and Environmental Planning Study - July 2008 - In 2003, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), in cooperation with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), initiated a National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process to study the need, merits, and possible impacts of potential transportation improvements in the Northwest Corridor of the Denver metropolitan area. The Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) appeared in the Federal Register dated July 21, 2003, and identified the proposed action as: “an improved connection between the western terminus of the Northwest Parkway in Broomfield County and the SH 58, I-70, or C-470 freeway systems to the south in Jefferson County. This connection is considered necessary to address the need for system linkage, to provide for existing and projected transportation demand, to improve safety, and to enhance modal interrelationships, within the Northwestern Quadrant of the Denver Metropolitan Area.” Keywords: Studies, Non-Highways
