The projects will enhance bus, bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure at high-travel corridors around the city.
The City of Boulder has launched a public feedback period for four proposed transportation projects it is considering submitting for funding in the Denver Regional Council of Governments’ (DRCOG) Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) 2022-2025 funding cycle.
The four proposed projects will enhance bus, bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure at high-travel corridors around the city and were identified for submission for their alignment with Boulder’s Transportation Master Plan and the city’s efforts to improve transportation safety on the city’s Core Arterial Network:
- The Broadway Transit Priority Intersections Project would, install transit-priority signals at the CO93/Broadway and Table Mesa Drive and CO93/Broadway and Regent Drive intersections and implement Business Access and Transit (BAT) lanes between Table Mesa and Regent to support faster and convenient regional and local transit service.
- The 28th Street Multi-Use Path Project would construct a pedestrian and bicyclist multi-use path on the west side of US 36 between Fourmile Canyon Creek Bridge to Violet Avenue (or a more limited section to Jay Road).
- The Baseline Road Enhanced Transit Stops and Protected Bike Lanes Project would enhance bus stops for improved transit service efficiency and improve the protected bike lane and bicycle intersection treatments to Baseline Road.
- The 30th Street Preliminary Design Project would develop concepts for facilities that would improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety and comfort, as well as enhanced transit amenities, along the 30th Street corridor from Arapahoe to CO119.
Community members can watch short informational videos on each project and view project factsheets on the city website. They can also schedule virtual office hours with city transportation staff to learn more about the projects. The feedback period will be open until May 6.
Following the feedback period, the city will present revised project proposals to the Transportation Advisory Board (TAB) at a public hearing and then to City Council before submitting any project proposals to the TIP.
Many city transportation projects are funded in part with federal and state dollars, which are generally distributed through the regional Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The TIP is managed by the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) and is prepared every four years to distribute funding for transportation projects in the region.
