US 6 in Clifton Transportation Improvements

US 6 Clifton roadway

About the Project

CDOT is in the planning phase of this project, which will focus on US Highway 6 from the I-70 Business Loop (I-70B) to just east of Clifton Elementary School.

The project team is refining potential transportation improvements to address congestion and safety on US 6, the main thoroughfare for the community of Clifton. This stretch of highway supports multiple forms of transit, as well as access to the elementary school, the U.S. Post Office and other local businesses.

In 2015, CDOT completed a planning and environmental linkages (PEL) study that examined the need for transportation improvements along the US 6 corridor through Clifton to improve:

  • mobility and reduce congestion
  • traffic operations on the corridor and at intersections
  • multimodal facilities
  • safety for all users

The PEL study developed and screened a reasonable range of potential improvements to enhance corridor operations and safety for all modes of transportation —including non-motorized travel.

Following the study, CDOT further refined potential corridor improvements to reduce right-of-way impacts while also improving congestion, safety and multimodal facilities.
