Project Description

The Andrus Road to Airport Road Multi-Use Path project is a City of Boulder transportation project that will construct a 10-foot-wide, off-street, concrete multi-use path between Andrus Road and the Airport Road office park. The project will link to the existing 63rd Street multi-use path at the underpass on 63rd Street and  improve the city’s system of multi-use paths, regional bicycling travel, and off-street and multi-use path connectivity between Gunbarrel and the Boulder urban center.

The proposed conceptual project design pdf was created through the collaboration of the city‘s Public Works and Open Space and Mountain Parks departments and between the city and Boulder County. The edges of the proposed path are a solid pink line, the centerline of the path is a dashed yellow line, the proposed fence is in red, and the existing fence is in orange. 

Project Improvements

The Andrus Road to Airport Road Multi-Use Path project will provide the following improvements:

  • Construction of a new 10-foot concrete multi-use path
  • Installation of fence to separate the new commuter bikeway from livestock that grazes on adjacent Open Space and Mountain parks land
  • Construction of an at-grade crossing at 61 st street along the proposed path alignment
  • Construction of a pedestrian/bicycle bridge over Fourmile Canyon Creek along the proposed path alignment

A similar multi-use path project which installed fence was constructed near 48th Street and Arapahoe Avenue.  These photos provide an example of what the Andrus Road to Airport Road Multi-Use Path project will look like when complete:

Schedule

Planning and design began in fall, 2015, and will be completed in 2018. 

Construction is estimated to begin in 2018 and will take about six months to complete, depending on weather conditions, contractor schedules and material delivery.

Funding Budget

The project budget is approximately $400,000 and is funded entirely with city transportation funds.

Previous Public Outreach

The project land use application was reviewed and conditionally approved by the Boulder County Commissioners at their Tuesday, November 1, 2016 meeting.
