Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to provide input on a project that will have significant impacts on your and your employees’ commute.
You are invited to a CO Highway 119 employer focus group hosted by Boulder Transportation Connections (BTC) (the Transportation Management Organization (TMO) for the city of Boulder and the sustainable transportation services arm of the Boulder Chamber) and CDOT, RTD and Multimodal Transportation Planning Division of the Boulder County Community Planning & Permitting Department.
The focus group will be virtual and will be held from on Thursday, July 7, 2022 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am. Please register here and keep an eye out for a meeting reminder email.
The purpose of the focus group is for County staff to present their preliminary designs for the installation of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and a commuter bikeway along the corridor, and to obtain input from employers along the corridor regarding how to design the BRT line and stations and the bikeway in such a way that they are useful to their employees (those who identify as low-income shift workers as well as any workers interested in finding cheaper, more sustainable way to commute).
Boulder County, Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), and the Regional Transportation District (RTD) are working together to improve safety and expand multimodal travel options along the Diagonal Highway (CO 119 from Boulder to Longmont). User-friendly connections between the bikeway, buses, and park-n-rides will provide a variety of new transportation options in the 119 Corridor that will improve safety, accessibility, and equity, while reducing climate change impacts.
The Bikeway Project – led by Boulder County – will create a safe, direct, and accessible separated hard surface bikeway with seamless connections to the BOLT and future bus rapid transit and connect to bike networks in Boulder, Gunbarrel, Niwot, and Longmont.
The Safety and Mobility Project – led by CDOT and RTD – will create Bus Rapid Transit, bus stations, park-n-rides, improved pedestrian crossings, and intersection improvements. The new Bus Rapid Transit will offer two branches serving Boulder and Longmont along with a consolidation of transit stops.
