East Arapahoe Transportation Plan
Introduction to the East Arapahoe Transportation Plan
The East Arapahoe Transportation Plan is a long-range plan that will consider a number of potential transportation improvements within the East Arapahoe corridor, including biking and walking enhancements, Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and local bus service and automobile travel. The purpose of the plan is to:
- Address existing & future transportation needs, including local and regional travel.
- Facilitate safe travel & access by people using all modes – walking, biking, accessing transit & driving.
- Support existing & future land use in the corridor.
East Arapahoe Transportation Plan Open House

Stay tuned to this webpage, as well as the Get Involved page for continuing information on public outreach events, and how to provide your feedback on the plan.
The East Arapahoe Transportation Plan grew out of the former Envision East Arapahoe Study that was put on hold in late-2014. While long-term land use planning for the East Arapahoe corridor was postponed, City Council supported moving forward with planning for transportation improvements in the corridor. This decision was based on:
- Strong public interest in addressing existing and future transportation needs in the East Arapahoe Corridor.
- Advancing the goals of the Boulder' s Transportation Master Plan .
- Forwarding the recommendations of RTD’ s Northwest Area Mobility Study , which identified the State Highway 7 Corridor (Arapahoe Ave to 287, and Baseline Rd east to I-25) between Boulder, Lafayette and Brighton as a strong candidate for an arterial BRT line.
- Coordinating with the future State Highway 7 Bus Rapid Transit Study that will be led by Boulder County.
